Skydive for St David’s Hospice Care in Swansea

If you would like to jump for St David’s Hospice Care Swansea Skydive offers the perfect solution. In return for raising a minimum of £320  in sponsorship, you will be able to make a tandem skydive at no cost to you other than the time you put in to obtaining the pledges and collecting the required charitable donations. Naturally, we would like you to raise as much money as possible and many people raise considerably in excess of the minimum required.

Why Swansea Skydive?

Skydive Swansea is the only drop zone in Wales, offering members of the public the opportunity to make a tandem parachute jump from 13,000 ft for charity. Watch this video to get an idea of what to expect!

So What Exactly is Involved?

This exciting challenge will involve 30 minutes of ground training followed by a tandem parachute jump attached to a qualified tandem instructor. At an altitude of up to 13,000 ft you will exit the aircraft and experience a thrilling 30-seconds of free fall followed by an exhilarating canopy ride after which you can fly the parachute yourself (under the guidance of your tandem instructor).

Sponsorship amount explained?

To undertake a tandem skydive, you will need to raise a minimum of £320. £220 of this is payable to Skydive Swansea (£40 as a non returnable deposit and £180 on the day). At least another £100 sponsorship (also payable on the day) from your tandem jump will go to St David’s Hospice Care.

Anything over the £320 total that you raise will go directly to St David’s.

Dates and Deposits?

Sign up as a group or an individual for any weekend convenient to you although as the year progresses bookings become more difficult.

You will need to pay a booking deposit of £40 per person with the balance of £180 minimum per person on the day of your jump.
