  • 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 outline of distant fields below.

    Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

    Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.

    Imagine being able to do this whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help raise money for Cancer Support Yorkshire.

    Jump for FREE!

    In return for raising a minimum amount of sponsorship money we will pay for your jump and training and receive a sizable donation from your efforts at the same time!

    Tandem Skydive: £395*

    *£450 in Scotland and Northern Ireland

    From these sums we will receive an average donation of £140 and you will receive your parachute jump for FREE!
