Who are you falling for?..... 

 
What better way to remember a loved one, celebrate a significant date or start a new chapter in your life than with a life-changing challenge?
 
Image standing in the doorway of an aeroplane, wind blowing through your hair, seeing the ground shrinking beneath you, preparing to jump………….then remember why you’re doing this and who for.

That’s all it takes to exit a plane at 15,000ft - the UK's highest sky dive!
 
If you’ve read this far, you’ve made the first steps to taking on this ultimate challenge, so here’s a bit more information you’ll need to know to take the next steps…..
 
WHAT DO I HAVE TO RAISE?
There are 2 booking options for you to choose from:
1.      Raise the minimum sponsorship of £420 and you can jump for FREE as Wakefield Hospice will pay for your jump*
OR
2.      Pay for your jump yourself and raise what sponsorship you can, there is no minimum requirement.
 
Please note a £50 deposit is required to confirm your place when booking. 

*It is important to recognise that whilst it appears that you get to jump free of charge, this cost is paid for by the charity and the people supporting you, so you should make them aware of this and we encourage you to raise as much as possible over the minimum target.

We ask that your sponsorship is raised one week before your jump date. This is because Wakefield Hospice will be invoiced for the cost of your jump so you do not have to worry about paying them! If you have not raised the £420 by then you will need to pay for the cost of your skydive on the day of your jump which is £219.
 
There is the option to have a video and photographs of your jump which would you would need to organise in advance with the airfield (Tel: 01652 648837). Any additional costs incurred for this will be at your own cost.
 
WHEN CAN I JUMP?
We have selected 27 September 2020 as our annual charity skydive day, however jump dates are available all year round (varying throughout the seasons – please refer to our booking form for more details).
