Acorns Skydive

**Places for the Acorns Skydive are now closed. If you would like to learn more about skydiving for Acorns please email our team on, or discover more upcoming events to get involved with in our events calendar**

Join #TeamAcorns on Saturday 16th September 2023 for a breathtaking 10,000ft skydive! 

Take the plunge and join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity while helping Acorns to support children with life limited and life threatening conditions. 

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the distant field below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – freefalling through the air at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, your fall slows and you gently return to earth. Sounds like fun?

Here’s how you can get involved… 

Participants are required to pay a £50 registration fee to secure your place, and raise a minimum sponsorship of £450, part of which is used to cover the cost of your skydive.

Please read the full terms and conditions before signing up.

Making every day count for local children
We can only continue providing care, support, fun and laughter for local life limited and life threatened children with your support. Did you know? When you fundraise £100 it could pay for three children to have a half hour physiotherapy session. Our specialist physiotherapists make sessions enjoyable for children while ensuring they get real benefits, including pain relief, improving stiff muscles and helping with breathing problems.

Kick start your fundraising

We’re here to support you all the way! By signing up for the event you will receive an Acorns T-Shirt, support from our Events team to help with your fundraising and the amazing feeling you’ll get from knowing you’re making a real difference to local children! Here are some simple ways to give your fundraising a boost, if you need more support we’d be happy to help. Just get in touch at

The minimum age for any parachute activity is 16 years (subject to a signed permission form from a parent or guardian).

There is no maximum age for tandem skydiving, however, anyone over 70 will require form 115B signed by a GP and will need to have an assessment carried out by the Chief Skydive Instructor.
