Frequently asked questions
Are there any charity skydives near me?
Absolutely. As you can see from the map above, there are jump sites located all across the country, so you will have no trouble finding a location.
How much does a charity skydive cost?
Skydives cost £70 to register, however this is returned to you once you reach the minimum fundraising target of £395. If you are unable to raise that amount, you are expected to cover the remaining costs yourself.
When is the charity skydive?
Jump sites are open throughout the year, mostly at weekends however some are also open on weekdays. When you register, you will be offered a date to jump. It is best to sign up a couple of months ahead if you have a specific date in mind. This also gives you plenty of time to fundraise.
Can anyone do a charity skydive?
You have to be 16 or older to take part in a skydive, and if you are under 18 you will need your parents to fill out a consent form to take with you on the day. A handful of jump sites also have upper age limits, however if you are under 65 you should be fine. There is also a weight limit, which is different for each jump site, but is typically around 15st. If you have a health condition or disability, you will need a medical form signed by your doctor.
How do I train for a charity skydive?
There is no training required before the day of your jump. You will undergo a quick-fire course in everything you need to know when you arrive. And do not worry – you will not be jumping alone, you will have a trained instructor jumping with you on the tandem skydive.
What do I need for a charity skydive?
You won’t need to bring anything specific on the day, although please only wear light clothes, as your jump suit and parachute will go on top of anything you’re wearing.
How do I fundraise for an overseas charity challenge?
When you sign up we will send you a free fundraising pack that will help get you started and we will offer you support all the step of the way. Setting up an online giving page is the easiest place to start, so your friends and family can sponsor you. You may also wish to arrange fundraising events, for example a bake sale or a quiz night, to really boost your fundraising.
Can I still do an charity skydive during the coronavirus pandemic?
The majority of jump sites have now reopened, with organisers putting in appropriate measures to ensure events can take place safely within the current guidelines. Please check the Skyline website for further details.
Why should I choose to do a charity skydive for Against Breast Cancer?
Against Breast Cancer is a charity dedicated to increase survival after breast cancer diagnosis by funding groundbreaking research into secondary breast cancer (metastases) to find key prevention factors and improved detection and treatment. When you fundraise with us, your money will be invested in our research and you will also be supported in every way possible with your fundraising and preparations for your event.
