Take to the Skies for Wakefield Hospice

Whether you’re skydiving to fulfil a lifelong ambition, in honour of a loved one, or simply to support Wakefield Hospice - experience the ultimate thrill of leaping from a plane at 15,000ft with a tandem skydive!

Skydives - Take the Leap

Our Booking Options:
1. £50 deposit + £370 min sponsorship (min total = £420)

Reserve a place on your chosen date by paying a deposit of £50 per person to Wakefield Hospice then start fundraising the minimum sponsorship of £370* 

2. £209 deposit + no min sponsorship total (min total = £209)

Pay £209 for your skydive (self-fund) and raise as much sponsorship as you can, no minimum requirement (but of course the more sponsorship you aim for, the more money raised to support local hospice care across the Wakefield district).

*It is important to recognise that whilst it appears that you are skydiving for £50 with option 1, the additional cost is taken from the sponsorship that you raise. The first £209 will pay for your skydive (£50 deposit + £159 sponsorship) then all money raised over this amount will go to Wakefield Hospice. We need to have received a minimum of £420 (deposit + sponsorship) at least one week before your jump date to ensure that all costs are covered.


When can I take on my skydive?
Skydive dates are available throughout the year.

Where does the skydive take place?

Photography & Videography

There is the option to buy a video with photographs of your skydive as a keepsake.  You can organise this in advance or on the day with the skydive centre.  Any additional costs incurred by you are not covered by Wakefield Hospice.

”Doing a tandem skydive was the most exhilarating experience of my life. The flight to 15000 ft was a joy then the door opened and I was sitting on the edge ready to jump. Before I knew it I was falling through the air. Once the parachute opens, you have time to look around and the views are stunning. Every single person who has skydived to raise money for Wakefield Hospice has loved it as much as I did.”
Alison, Community Fundraiser
