Always wanted to do a skydive? Or are you looking for a twist on the old favourite?
Are you desperate to ‘do’ something while Covid19 has put a stop to many plans?
Take part in our group Santa Skydive day on Saturday 5th December 2020 at Hinton Airfield in Brackley, and help raise funds for St Richard’s.
Skydives are a fantastic personal achievement and a great way to support the hospice, especially when many other fundraising events and challenges have been cancelled due to Covid19.
Santa Skydive overview:
*Jump and training completed in one day
*Harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times
*Jump from at least 10,000 feet – falling through the air at 120 mph
*Steer on to the drop zone in front of your friends and family
*Landing controlled by the instructor
Do you fancy this?
Pay a £70 administration fee upon registration (non-refundable) via the booking link below – direct to Skyline PLUS:
Option 1: Pledge to raise a minimum £500 in sponsorship for SRH by 2 weeks prior to your jump and your costs will be paid for
Option 2: Pay for your own jump costs of £200 and raise as much as you can in sponsorship for SRH
We have kindly asked you raise as much as you can as it will all go towards the £9.3m required this year to help us continue to provide the free services to those who need it. To give you some inspiration …
• £15.63 could pay for a specialist Living Well Centre (formally Day Hospice) Nurse for an hour
• £90.26 could pay for a Hospice at Home Healthcare Assistant for a day
• £121.53 could pay for a Staff Nurse in the In Patient Unit for a day
• £486 could pay for a patient to receive specialist care in our In Patient Unit for one day
(using 2018/19 audited account costs)

Please look at these documents and bear in mind –
* If a jumper lives in an area which is in lockdown (such as many areas in Wales) then they have had to reschedule their dates – but the airfields are still operating. If a full lockdown was to happen again, as it was in April-June, then the airfields would have to close again and all jumps would be rescheduled to later dates.
*Jumpers do wear masks for kitting up, during the plane journey and de-rigging – they don’t wear them during the jump itself.
*Spectator numbers are limited.
