Take on a Skydive to become a #WishHero and together, we will create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses!

About the event

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet, getting ready to do a skydive.

Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you freefall at over 120mph!

For a once-in-a-lifetime adrenalin rush that you'll never forget, take part in a sponsored skydive and raise money to help grant us life-changing wishes.

All training is provided and no experience is necessary. Just raise £395* for Make-A-Wish UK and you get to jump for free.

There are 20 different airfields around the UK which are open throughout the year. The jump and training is completed in one day – and you're harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times.

*For airfields in Scotland and Northern Ireland the minimum sponsorship target for a tandem skydive is £450. 

For further details, download our information pack.
