Join us and Skydive Hibaldstow on Thursday 15th September 2022 at Hibaldstow Airfield in Lincolnshire where we’re inviting you to skydive for us to raise vital funds for hospice care in North Derbyshire. 

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” So why not do a 15,000 ft Skydive? 

Whether you are an adrenaline junkie, needing to tick off your bucket list, looking for a team-building opportunity, or just wanting to support your local hospice, this is the perfect opportunity. 

What can you get out of this? 

  • The thrill of a 120mph freefall from 15,000ft 
  • An Ashgate Hospice T-shirt 
  • Support and guidance from our team and Hibaldstow Skydiving 
  • A dedicated fundraiser on hand to help you hit (and exceed!) your fundraising target, as well as a fundraising website page to offer you helpful tips and tricks along your fundraising journey
  • A once in a lifetime experience 
  • The reassurance that you are supporting your local hospice 
  • An on-site café and bar offering hot and cold food, as well as non-alcoholic/alcoholic beverages 
  • Professional and experienced instructors 
  • A certificate of bravery 

The allocation of a place is dependent on more than one factor. However, a successful applicant will be able to demonstrate a clear plan of how they will raise in excess of £350 in sponsorship. By fundraising for us, you’ll be helping to make sure that when our loved ones in North Derbyshire face a life-limiting illness, they’ll be able to access the specialist care and support they need. 

All sponsorship money will be paid directly to Ashgate Hospice. Participants will be emailed the deposit payment link once completing the registration form. 

You faced 2021 head on, now you can do this. Don’t underestimate your bravery.
