It was the most amazing experience. It was both exhilarating and terrifying in equal measures, but I absolutely loved it. I would do it all again tomorrow if I had the opportunity!
Tandem Skydiver, 2021
What do I need to do?
Taking on a Skydive for Pilgrims is as simple as paying your £40 deposit and pledging to raise at least £395 for local hospice care.
By raising £395, you will be enabling Pilgrims to provide 15 hours of specialist nursing care to a patient receiving end-of-life in one of our inpatient units in Ashford, Canterbury or Margate; thank you!
Deposits are non-refundable but will count towards your sponsorship target.
Can anyone take part?
Yes, anyone over 16 years old can do a tandem skydive. Experience isn’t necessary. You’ll receive all the training you need on the day and be safely strapped to a professional instructor throughout the jump.
For safety reasons, a few restrictions do apply:
- If you’re between 16 and 18 years old you’ll need written consent from a parent or guardian.
- Those with existing health conditions, and anyone over 40 years old, must sign a declaration of fitness in order to participate.
- There is an upper weight limit of 14.5 stone (92 kg) for men and 13.5 stone (86 kg) for women. You may be weighed during registration.
