Skydive Day

Fly high for Saint Mary's Hospital Charity at our Skydive Day!

Event taking place over two days - 5th-6th September 2020

After climbing to 11,000 feet you will exit the aircraft with your highly experienced British Parachute Association Instructor and free-fall for 30 seconds, reaching a speed of around 120 miles per hour. Your descent under the large parachute will then take several minutes, with family and friends watching and cheering as you make your landing!

The jump takes place at Black Knights Parachute Centre in Cockerham, Lancashire.  You will have to pay a fee to the airfield for your training and jump itself and we ask our supporters to raise £150 sponsorship.

Upon booking a £50 non-refundable deposit will be required. On the day of the jump you will need to make a final payment of £155 to cover the cost of the jump.

Please note, it is vital that you provide us with your age, weight and height, as these are important factors with this kind of challenge event. The maximum allowable weight is 15 stone for males and approximately 13 stone for females. You must be aged 16 or over to take part in the event, and have the permission of a parent/guardian if you are under 18. If you are aged over 40 you will also require a British Parachute Associate Declaration of Fitness form for completion by your doctor before the event – we will provide you with this form.

Participants can choose for their fundraising to support any ward, department or project.  If you would like the money you raise to support a specific area then please let the Events Team know.
