Leave your troubles behind at 10,000 feet up with St Wilfrid’s

St Wilfrid’s Hospice is offering people the chance to experience the freedom of flight with sponsored 10,000 feet free-fall parachute jumps now available again.

With Covid-ready special measures and a PPE-style tandem jumpsuit now in place, the following dates can now be booked:

  • Sunday 20th September 2020
  • Sunday 7th March 2021
  • Sunday 4th July 2021

Alex Burch, Community Fundraising Manager said, "I remember my first jump, the nerves on the way up were easily surpassed by the almost indescribable sense of exhilaration on the jump itself. I think many of us are looking from an escape from the norm at the moment so there really is no better time to seek an experience of a life time!" 

Rest assured you are in very safe hands with the GoSkyDive team – as they are the UK’s specialist for first timers and have all training sessions British Parachute Association approved.

Hayley Gardener, who jumped with St Wilfrid’s last year said, “I felt every kind of emotion - it was such a surge of adrenaline, I had a clearer head than I had had in months!

I was glowing for days and days afterward. I definitely came down a different person, more confident. I looked at life a different way after all the care and support St Wilfrid’s had given us after my dad died. The jump was part thank you for that.”
