Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go! Take the ultimate leap of adrenaline for seriously ill children and their families this year.

Take the plunge and join our skydiving team! Get a group of mates or colleagues together and do the challenge as a team and support each other along the way.

The Skydive for Together for short lives is best thing I have ever done! It’s an incredible experience to raise money for such a worthwhile cause & I would recommend it to anyone! I want to do it again!

– Emma, Skydiver

Details

To take part in a tandem skydive in support of Together for Short Lives the registration fee is £70 and the minimum sponsorship is £395.

Out of the £395 sponsorship comes:

  • £170 – £230 training and jump cost (varies between airfields). This money can either be paid in cash on the day to the airfield or if you have raised the minimum sponsorship amount before your jump on an online giving page then the charity can be invoiced. (If you are using a ‘Do-it-for-Charity’ giving page to raise your money then the money goes direct to Skyline so you also won’t need to take cash on the day).
  • £165 – £225 approximate sponsorship money that Together for Short Lives will get. If this money has been raised online it will come direct to the charity. Or Skyline can collect this money as a cheque on the day if it hasn’t been raised online, Or you can send this direct to the charity.

Every extra pound that you raise over the minimum comes straight to the charity, so the more you raise, the greater an impact your skydive will have for the children and families facing the very toughest of challenges.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the sponsorship, you’ll make it and who knows – you may even smash it!

We are always here to help support you in reaching your goal, so feel free to get in touch with us any time. We are confident you can hit that fundraising target and with our help, you may even exceed it! As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you can also organise extra fundraising activities to reach your goal.

Please get in touch with Jessy on jessica.smith@togetherforshortlives.org.uk with any queries regarding sign up, routes and how your support can make a difference to seriously ill children and their families across the UK.
