Skydive for Pilgrims
Join us for the adrenaline-fuelled, experience of a lifetime with our tandem skydive days! Free fall from 10,000ft and experience breathtaking views as you raise vital funds to support hospice care across east Kent.
The sky’s the limit as you join other Pilgrims supporters all soaring through the sky, ticking something off their bucket list, or taking extreme measures in conquering a fear of heights…
There’s two dates to choose from
Saturday 3 June 2017
Saturday 9 September 2017
Taking part in a Pilgrims Skydive Day is a simple as paying your £20 deposit; and, if you raise the £380 minimum sponsorship target, your skydive will be free! (Deposits are non-refundable but will count towards your sponsorship target)
By raising sponsorship for Pilgrims Hospices you’ll be supporting the skilled and compassionate care we provide for more than 2,300 people each year across east Kent who are living with a life-limiting illness.
Do I need any experience?
No experience is necessary as you’ll receive all the training needed on the day and be strapped to a professional instructor throughout the jump itself.
Can anyone take part?
Yes. Absolutely anyone over the age of 16 can take part in a tandem skydive, although there are a few restrictions for safety reasons.
If you are between 16 and 18 years of age, you will need to gain written parental/guardian consent.
Everyone will have to sign a declaration of fitness and anyone over the age of 40 must have this signed and stamped by their doctor.
For safety reasons, there is an upper weight limit of 14½ stone (92kgs) for men, and 13½ stone (86kgs) for women. You may be weighed during registration.
