Tandem skydiving provides the experience of a lifetime and is a great way to raise funds for a good cause at the same time. Plus if you raise enough sponsorship your charity jump could be for free.
It takes just 20 minutes to be briefed for your jump and then you will jump harnessed to the front of a fully British Skydiving qualified Tandem Parachuting Instructor and experience the thrill of 120mph freefall. You can do a sponsored skydive on any date that Skydive Hibaldstow is open (subject to availability).

All it takes is a bit of time and effort to fundraise. There are two options when it comes to doing a sponsored skydive:
It is important to recognise that although it seems you are skydiving for free, the tandem parachute jump is being paid for by the charity and the people supporting your cause, so you should try to raise as much as possible over the minimum target.
It is also important that you contact your chosen charity and agree the use of funds and the minimum sponsorship required with them directly.
Skydive Hibaldstow has links to several local charities with whom we already have agreements however we understand that you might want to choose a charity close to your heart. You are welcome to skydive for any charitable cause but you do need to agree the use of funds with them directly.
By booking directly with the dropzone and not through an agency all the funds raised only go two ways – to cover the cost of your charity tandem skydive and to the charity itself.
If you are fundraising for a charity of your own choice, you must contact the charity and agree to the use of funds directly with them.
Kaylie always wanted to try skydiving. When her auntie mentioned she had seen that the hospice was holding a charity skydive event, she thought it would be the perfect opportunity to fulfil her dream and raise money for a brilliant charity.
For some, skydiving does not come easy. It takes a lot of courage and persistence. But when a person does make their first tandem skydive and when it is for charity, the sense of achievement and endeavour is amazing. It’s a real ‘life achievement’. This is the story of Tara Sherwood and her first tandem skydive.
