Skydiving and parachuting
the sporting experience of a lifetime!
Skydiving is the ultimate adrenaline rush. Jumping out of an
aircraft at 12,000ft and plummeting earthwards at speeds of over
120mph is like no other feeling in the world. Choose from tandem
skydiving, a solo parachute jump or a professional skydiving
course, harnessed to a professional freefall parachute
- Tandem Skydive - £395
- Static Line Jump - £360
- Solo Skydive - £535
If you would like to fundraise for The Disabilities
Trust, please call The Fundraising and
Events Team on 01444 237 286 to request a fundraising pack
to get advice about activities in your area.
If you fancy doing a bigger challenge in another country, maybe
trekking The Great Wall of China or Kilimanjaro, cycling through
Cuba or Sri Lanka, you decide which challenge is big enough for you
and we are here to help you make that decision!!
Overseas treks are fairly high in fundraising targets, this is
because you have to fundraise your trek cost too, alternatively you
can pay for your trek cost up front and fundraise separately.
However, the overseas treks are designed to be life changing and
goal driven - it wouldn't be called a challenge otherwise!!
Please contact the fundraising team if you are thinking of doing
an overseas trek for the charity firstname.lastname@example.org
