Skydive for the Albert Kennedy Trust – Dare you!

Throughout the year

Nationwide locations

Join the Albert Kennedy Trust on our 25th Anniversary year and help make a difference to the young LGBT homeless people we support.

Take part in the ultimate daredevil event –  SKYDIVE!

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go - falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below. Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help a national charity! Stop imagining, it's real and it's happening all the time and you can be part of it...

What does the jump involve?

Technically the jump is called a 'Tandem Skydive'. It is a Skydive because you will be freefalling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet; it is in Tandem because you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent. This is the only way you can jump from such an altitude without spending thousands of pounds becoming a freefall parachutist. This is literally the chance of a lifetime!

This jump is also much less demanding than the traditional ‘static line’ jump as the jump and training are completed in one day and your instructor will be in control of your landing.

How much does it cost?

Registration is from £70 per person – however if you raise the minimum of £395 we will refund your £70 registration fee – making the jump free of charge!

For more information regarding this please contact Tom on 0207 831 6562.

Your funds raised are vital for the work we do at the Albert Kennedy Trust in supporting LGBT youths.

PLEASE MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY AND SUPPORT THE ALBERT KENNEDY TRUST IN ITS 25th ANNIVERSARY.
