100% adrenaline


Skydive with Team ARTHUR for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity

 

Do you dare take a leap with #TeamARTHUR!

This year we have two opportunities for the adrenaline to get pumping through your veins!! 

Tandem Skydive with UK Parachuting, Sibson Airfield 

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 two 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.

How do I book my jump? 

  • Self fund your bungee jumps for £60 per person and then fundraise as much as you can for the Hospice. Contact challenges@arhc.org.uk to find out how to book your place! 

Dates for upcoming trips are:

You can jump at Wyboston Lakes, Wyboston, Bedford on Saturday 28 September or Sunday 29 September.

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. If you would like to direct your fundraising to the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre, please inform one of our fundraisers.

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!


Freefalling


 
 

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."
