Our charity events
As of Friday 13 March 2020, an increasing number of major events were cancelled or postponed including the London Marathon and other mass participation events that raise significant sums for charities.
Of course, we too had to postpone any public events that we had planned which have had a significant effect on our ability to fundraise in this way.
Whilst we are not planning any events at the moment, here are some examples of other events that you could take part in and raise funds for us at the same time:
The NHS Big Tea: Monday 5 July 2021
The NHS has touched us all and the NHS Big Tea is a chance to celebrate and say thank you. On 5 July people across the UK are organising tea parties to support their local NHS Charity. Check back soon when we’ll be posting more information and the simple steps to get involved.
London to Brighton Cycle Ride: Sunday 19 September 2021

Jump for charity
Many people who make a parachute jump do so whilst raising funds for a worthwhile cause. Our charity is registered with Skyline who are the largest organisers of sponsored charity jumps in the UK.
Jump for FREE!
In return for raising a minimum amount of sponsorship money we will pay for your jump and training and you’ll be fundraising for us at the same time.
So which skydive is for me?
Option one: the Tandem
The tandem is the most popular of all skydives – perfect for the newbie adrenaline junkie, as you’ll be strapped to a fully qualified instructor who does all the work, leaving you to enjoy the view! You can book to do a tandem on your own, or with a group of friends and our airfields are open all year round. Feel the full force of flying through the clouds from over 10,000ft reaching speeds of up to 125mph! It’s a truly unforgettable experience – though just in case, you can book a video to remember your jump by!
Option two - the AFF
Your opportunity to complete a solo skydive! From 10,000 feet you will exit the aircraft on your own – an exhilarating experience and a real achievement. Two fully qualified instructors will be with you every step of the way, but you will not be strapped to either of them and will be responsible for pulling your own parachute. This involves a separate day’s extensive training.
Airfields are all across the UK so there’s bound to be one near you.
