Charity Overgate Hospice, Halifax

Overgate logoAbout The Charity

Sadly, only 20% of this is funded by the Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group, with the rest coming from traditional fundraising activities by the general public. "Because you care, we can."

How much does it cost?
The overgate Hospice asks that you raise a minimum of £425 in sponsorship. This covers the deposit and cost of the skydive and a minimum donation to the charity.

Advance Deposit to secure your place payable to the Overgate Hospice £50

Outstanding sponsorship to be paid on the day or within no more than three months of the jump date.   £225
