Prince of Wales Hospice

Prince of Wales Hospice logo

The Prince of Wales Hospice is based in Pontefract, West Yorkshire and is passionate about supporting people with life-limiting illnesses and their families in a positive, caring and practical way. 

They think of themselves as an integral part of The Five Towns community (Normanton, Pontefract, Featherstone, Castleford and Knottingley), offering round-the-clock support 365 days a year.

All of the care provided by The Prince of Wales Hospice is free of charge to all their patients. But it is not free to provide. It costs them more than £6,000 a day to stay open, but the Hospice only receives about a third of this from the NHS. They need to raise around £4,000 a day to continue making a difference so why not take part in one of their charity skydives.


How Much Does it Cost?

You simply need to raise a minimum amount of £395 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 Prince of Wales Hospice

£50

Balance payable on arrival for the Tandem Skydive

£200

Minimum sponsorship payable on arrival to the Prince of Wales Hospice

£145

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

The Prince of Wales Hospice has arranged three charity skydiving dates with us:

  • Sunday 26th March 2017

Places are reserved for the charity until about 8 weeks before the jump date, so make sure you book your place and leave enough time to fundraise.
