What's on Fundraising events Hereford events Sponsored Skydive Take the challenge of a lifetime whilst raising money to support people affected by breast cancer with our sponsored tandem skydive. Imagine sitting in the open door of an aircraft at 10,000ft, legs dangling over the edge and preparing yourself for the 120mph rush back down to earth. Imagine experiencing this whilst raising money for a good cause like Breast Cancer Haven. What is tandem skydive? A tandem skydive or tandem parachuting involves the participant being connected to a BPA qualified instructor through the use of a harness. The instructor will be in charge throughout the whole descent from getting ready through to landing. The participants do not require any previous experience and will be given a safety briefing on the day of their jump. You’ll be able to experience the 120mph rush once you and your instructor have left the aircraft for approximately 30 seconds. Then your instructor will deploy the parachute, where you will then experience the peace and quiet whilst gliding slowly back down to the ground. You will skydive with Skydive Shobdon on Saturday 13th October 2018 or please contact us for alternative dates. To take part in this skydive, you will pay a non-refundable registration fee of £100 and raise a minimum sponsorship of £395. For details please contact [email protected] or call 01432 361 061.
