Ready to fly high?

To skydive for Hospice in the Weald, we ask for a minimum pledge of £500 to be raised ideally a month prior to your jump. This will cover the cost of your jump (approx. £290, depending on type of jump and location).

How it works:

  1. Set up your JustGiving page for us
  2. Fundraise with a target of £500 – try to reach your target about a month before your skydive
  3. Book your skydive with Click and Jump and pay the £50 booking fee. Don’t forget to click ‘Yes’ when asked if the jump is for a charity, and then choose us from the drop-down menu.
  4. Turn up to your Drop Zone on your big day and we will pay for your skydive (from the money you fundraised). The rest of the funds you raised will go directly to Hospice in the Weald.
  5. Enjoy your once in a lifetime experience and be part of a beautiful challenge to be proud of.
