A charity skydive is the ultimate thrill you'll never forget!

A skydive is up there with one of the most exhilarating experiences you can try. Maybe you have a big birthday coming up or you've always wanted to jump out of a plane but never had the chance - this is your sign to book a charity skydive in aid of North Devon Hospice!

Once in a lifetime feeling

Imagine the exhilarating feeling of jumping out of a plane and free-falling at around 120mph, opening the parachute and gliding back down to land taking in the view around you. Skydiving is the best way to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Doing this with North Devon Hospice means that we can continue caring for local people at the end of their lives and support their families. 

 

Conquer a fear or celebrate a big birthday

The aircraft will "run in" over the airfield at around 15,000ft when the door will open. You will move to the door securely attached to your highly qualified instructor and jump into the air! After free-falling to 5,000 ft, your instructor will open the parachute and you can help them (if you wish) steer the parachute down to a gentle landing on the "dropzone". 

Jump for free

When booking your jump through SkyDive Buzz, you can choose to take part in the 'jump for free' scheme by raising a minimum of £395 sponsorship. We will then pay the fee for the skydive from the money raised, leaving the remaining money for the Hospice. Anything you raise beyond £395 will also go straight to the hospice and the incredible nurses and supportive care workers who keep supporting and caring for local families.

If you'd rather cover the cost of the jump yourself so every pound raised goes directly to supporting the Hospice, that's okay too!
