Bassetlaw Hospice

Bassetlaw Hospice logoSkydive Hibaldstow has joined with Bassetlaw Hospice to offer tandem skydiving courses at our dropzone.

Bassetlaw Hospice offers high quality paliative care and family support to the local community in Retford, Nottinghamshire. Founded in 1994, the charity is entirely self-funded providing in-patient care, complimentary therapies, building & fixtures maintenance and 24 hour nursing care.

Each year a minimum of £250,000 must be raised to cover its running costs and this charity tandem skydiving event is an important part of that. Working closely with Bassetlaw Health Partnership (NHS), they provide nursing and medical services funding for the charity.

How Much Does It Cost
Bassetlaw Hospice ask that you raise a minimum of £400 per person to take part in a charity skydive.

Advance deposit payable directly to Bassetlaw Hospice £50
Balance payable to Skydive Hibaldstow £200
Remaining sponsorship payable to Bassetlaw Hospice within 6 weeks of jumping £150

Every extra penny over this amount also goes to the charity, so try and raise as much as you possibly can.
