100% adrenaline

Skydive with Team ARTHUR for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity


Do you dare take a leap with #TeamARTHUR!

This is the ultimate in adrenaline challenges! Falling through the skies from over 13,000 feet at 120mph is an amazing thrill. The rushing air coupled with amazing views make this something to add to your 'must-do' list.

A tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires only 30 minutes training before you get to jump strapped to your instructor! The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds.

Taking part in this adrenaline filled event will not only leave you with an amazing experience but your sponsorship will also go towards making a real difference to people with life-limiting illnesses. Your funds will enable us to continue giving life-enhancing care not only to our patients but to their family and friends who are also affected.

There are three ways to take part in this challenge. For full details please contact us here.

  • Pay a £50 (non-refundable) registration fee and commit to raising £400.00.
  • Self-fund the challenge costs of £215 (including £50 non-refundable registration fee) and raise as much sponsorship as you can.
  • Partly self-fund the challenge costs (please contact us for exact figures)

Joining #Team ARTHUR will give you access to a wealth of fundraising experience as we will support you along the way with our fundraising tools, promotional items and media coverage.

Remember, any UK taxpayer can increase their gift by 25p for every pound donated through Gift Aid. (If your sponsorship is covering the cost of your skydive we are unable to claim gift aid on any donation received from family members. Please refer to the Fundraising Team for further information.)

Dates for upcoming trips are:

Update 13 July 2018: Unfortunately the Skydive - which was due to take place Sunday 15 July - has had to be postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Note the word "postpone" rather than cancelled - the #TeamArthur skydivers aren't getting out of it by any stretch of the imagination - they now just have a little longer to get nervous...! Please get in touch for alternative dates throughout the year. 

We have two jump locations based in Peterborough and Beccles, and you may choose whichever is more convenient to you.

Donna Matthews faced her fear of flying and raises nearly £1,000!

Donna had always wanted to skydive, even going as far as booking one a few year's ago but family life got in the way and then a fear of flying stopped Donna from pursuing the challenge.

After her Uncle Herbert was cared for at the end of his life by the hospice in January 2017, she decided it was time to get on a plane for the first time in 28 years; and jump out of it!   

Donna raised a fantastic £970 for the hospice!

Donna jumps at 13,000ft!



On 20 July, Charles Parish and Joel Waters jumped out of a plane at 13,000ft in memory of Charles' Auntie Sue who passed away in November 2013.

Charles told us "The skydive was one of the best experiences of our lives, there's nothing that can describe falling to earth at 120mph! What made it even better was that we were doing it to support Arthur Rank Hospice, who had showed so much love to my Auntie in her last days."
