Do something amazing and jump for charity!
Is jumping out of a plane on your bucket list? Imagine doing this whilst raising funds for a good cause. Well at Black Knights, you can! We work with 100’s of charities in the North West and around the UK.
What is involved?
A tandem skydive involves you being connected to a British Skydiving qualified instructor through the use of a harness. You’ll be able to experience the 120mph rush once you have completed your 20-minute safety briefing on the date of your choice.
How does charity/sponsored skydive work?
1st Step – Select a charity
You can either pick a charity from our list or can choose your own. Some charities will have fundraising targets and some you pay for the skydive yourself. You will need to contact the charity to discuss this with them directly and to register your intent.
2nd Step – Book your date
You can either book individually or as a group. You can book for any day which shows available via our online calendar. We require a £100 non-refundable deposit to secure the date and the remaining balance is then due on the day. If you after information on group bookings please see the group bookings information below.
Start fundraising! It is important that you contact the charity, so they can send their official charity sponsor packs to you. You must also have an agreement or approval from the charity, if they are covering the cost of the skydive with the sponsorship. Most charities use online fundraising however please be aware that the remaining balance which is due on the day must be paid either by card or cash. This cannot be paid with the funds that have been raised online.
If you would like to book a group charity event the cost depends on how many are in your group, please see the table below:
Group discounts are only applied on weekends and not applicable for 7000ft. Prices stated below are priced per person.
To get the ball rolling follow the steps below:
1st Step – Contact the office on 01524 791820 or alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org to have a look at available dates. We can reserve the amount of spaces you require on your chosen date, so you can start to advertise and promote the day!
2nd Step – We will normally be in contact with you 6 weeks prior to the date, just to get an update on numbers so we can either release unused spaces or book more spaces in. At this stage, we can also discuss and organise details such as payments, timings etc.
3rd Step – At 4 weeks, timings will be given once we have the confirmed numbers. Deposits would be required at this stage as well as participants details. When participants sign up we require the following details:
- Weight and Height
- Contact details
- Any medical restrictions
If a participant doesn’t meet the weight or medical requirements it is does not mean necessarily they can’t take part, they will just need to get in contact with us direct.
