Skydive for Charity and Support Helen & Douglas House

This is a great event for thrill-seekers and adrenaline lovers. Pluck up the courage and skydive for charity – jump out of an aircraft at 13,000 feet all in aid of a good cause.

Take part in our tandem skydive which will provide you with an opportunity of a lifetime and get your pulse racing whilst raising money to help local terminally ill children like Max.

Date: Various dates from July – October
Location: Hinton Skydiving Centre, Northamptonshire
Registration fee £80 per person plus a fundraising target of £375 (£250 of which must have been raised by the date of your skydive)

After a short briefing, you will be ready to jump from 13,000 feet. Training is run throughout the morning and you will be strapped to the front of a tandem instructor who is there to control the skydive for you.

Once you leave the plane at 13,000 feet, you accelerate to 120 mph, covering each thousand feet in approximately five seconds. At 5,000 feet the Instructor will deploy the parachute which will then be controlled by both people until you land softly and gently some four minutes later.

So skydive for charity and have an experience you’ll never forget.
