Parachute academy Parachute academy Parachute academy

You can combine your adrenalin fuelled fun with raising money for a good cause, either on your own or as part of an organised group from your place of work, school, college, or club.

Decide which jump course best suits your fundraising activity:

Parachute Tandem Skydive
Parachute Static-line Solo Course

Raising Sponsorship:

The centre is closely associated with some of the Province’s leading charities. To obtain a sponsorship pack a commitment fee of £40 is required. This is non-refundable and is deducted from the course fee. A booking deposit is still required to confirm a course date.

I took part in a tandem skydive on 26th August to raise money for cancer research – it was amazing, I cannot wait to do it again.

Anyway, here are some tips we have put together to help you out:

Pick a date for your jump and making a booking.
Choose a Charity close to your heart.
Make sure you always carry your sponsor form and a pen, you never know who you will meet.
When fundraising, start with your family, friends and people work. Basically start with those who will sponsor you the most. This will set the bar high at the top of your sponsor sheet.
Learn more about the jump. Talking about your adrenalin challenge will attract the interest of all your sponsors.
Set a target to but be realistic.
Ask your employer or bank to match what you raise. This will offer them great PR value and double your sponsorship.
If you are involved with a clubs or community group, then ask them for some ideas on fundraising.
Hold a raffle, competition or a pub quiz to add some funds to your collection.
Contact the charity or group that you are raising funds for. They will be able to give you great advice on how to maximize your fundraising efforts.

Do you work for a Charity?

We have a specialist department which deals with event organisers from charities – the team will organise a Charity Induction where you will be supplied with further information and all the relevant paperwork.

I took part in a static line Charity Jump in 2009. I loved it so much that I continued with the sport and I now skydive as often as I can. I have completed over 2000 jumps and made lifelong friends at Wild Geese. Just to think - this all started from my first charity skydiving jump.

If you wish to continue in the sport after your jump we recommend that you book yourself onto our static line parachute academy courses.
