15 September 2018

Registration fee: £50

Enjoy the exhilarating and unforgettable feeling of a skydive – flying through the clouds from over 13,000 ft up ( and travelling at speeds of up to 120 mph), all in aid of Spinal Injuries Association!

SIA are looking for thrill-seeking fundraisers to join us at our first ever Skydiving Day, giving you the chance to take on this once in a lifetime challenge alongside other members of TeamSIA!

Best of all: hit the sponsorship target and you can jump completely free of charge!

 

Whats Included

The day will start with a short safety briefing, before you are suited up and introduced to your instructor, who will look after you from start to finish. From there, you will head out to the plane and the real fun will start!

As a Tandem Skydive, you will be strapped to a trained instructor throughout, who will be fully in control of your descent from start to finish.

As our first ever Skydive Day our staff and volunteers will be there  to encourage you and help make the day extra special. Friends, family and colleagues are all more than welcome to come along and provide some moral support  – and cheer you on as you come in to land.

We will also have some competitions on the day, and a celebratory picnic, to help make this a fun and truly memorable day for all involved!
