Skydive for Acorns
Our next skydive is: Saturday 16th September at Hibalstow.
“It was one of the most truly amazing experiences I have had in my life. It made it even better knowing I'd done it for Acorns and raised a bit of cash along the way!” Natalie Warburton
Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 15,000 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 – falling forward through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, your fall slows and you gently return to earth.
Technically the jump is called a “Tandem Skydive” because you will freefall through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet harnessed to a professional parachute instructor. This is the only way you can jump from such an altitude without spending thousands of pounds becoming a freefall parachutist; so this really is a chance of a lifetime!
The event takes place at Hibaldstow Airfield. Jumpers are encouraged to bring friends and family along to spectate!
Participants are required to raise a minimum sponsorship of £500; this covers the cost of the £50 registration fee, the jump at £200 per person and raises £250 for Acorns Children's Hospice.
