About Skydives 2017

Take to the skies in a challenge like no other – jump from 15,000 ft and experience one whole adrenaline-fuelled minute of freefall reaching terminal velocity at 120mph all whilst raising vital funds to help St Gemma’s Hospice be there for 3,000 local people who needs us in their final months, weeks and hours of life.
“I’d always fancied doing a skydive but have never been brave enough, when my mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer and spent her final days in St Gemma’s Hospice I thought it would be a brilliant way to repay them for the care and dignity they gave mum her final days. I wanted to be brave for my mum and do this in her honour” –St Gemma’s Skydiver 2016.
