Skydives 2022 – Langar
Unfortunately, our July Skydive has sold out. However, we do have some further limited skydiving dates available. If you are interested, please visit: Skydives 2022 – Hibaldstow Airfield – St Barnabas Hospice
Imagine this… You’re sitting at the edge of an open doorway, with your feet dangling below you, you look up and see the clouds above. You’re in an aircraft flying at 15,000 feet. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds below, skydiving down through the air as you start free-falling at over 120mph, looking down at the beautiful countryside!
We are working with Skydive Langar to give you the opportunity of a life time, something that is not only fearsome but something that is new and exhilarating.
Make 2022 the year where you tick skydiving off your bucket list and help raise money for people living with a life-limiting or terminal illness across Lincolnshire. Whether you want to fulfil a lifetime ambition, jump in memory of a loved one or push yourself out of your comfort zone, we are here to help every step of the way. 2022 is also our 40th year of providing care and support to the people of Lincolnshire, so this is a perfect way to celebrate and help us raise money to be able to continue doing this for many more years to come.
Skydive Langar (Available date: 3rd July 2022):
A Tandem skydive allows you to experience the thrill of freefall skydiving with just a brief training session. You will skydive harnessed to the front of a fully qualified parachuting instructor from 14,000ft. You will enjoy an adrenaline packed freefall reaching terminal velocity at 120mph, followed by approximately 5 minutes flying gently to the ground under the parachute.
Please note that for tandem skydives there is a MAXIMUM WEIGHT (fully clothed) of 95 kg (15 stone) or 83 kg if you are less than 163cm (5ft 4in). This limit is in place for your own safety and that of our instructors. The minimum age is 16 and for anyone who is under the age of 18 would need a parent or guardian to sign the paperwork. There are no restrictions to height.
How much does it cost?
This exhilarating, once in a lifetime experience is £50 to register! All we ask is that you fundraise a minimum of £395 for St Barnabas.
- The full cost for the skydive is £445. Of this, £225 pays for your skydive jump costs. The remaining minimum £235 sponsorship will go directly to patient care and support.
- We do offer a self-fund option for the skydive at a cost of £225 to yourself. All we ask is that you fundraise a further minimum £225 in sponsorship which will go directly to patient care and support.

How will we support you?
Once you are registered, we will support you all the way up to and including the event itself. Not only will you receive your own cotton St Barnabas t-shirt to wear on the day, you will also be invited to be a part of our ‘Adventure with St Barnabas’ private Facebook group where you will be able to meet likeminded people and talk about your challenge.
We will also provide you with a digital fundraising pack which will show you how to set up your JustGiving page and provide you with hints and tips on how to maximise your sponsorship while taking on your very own St Barnabas Skydive.
How will your support help us?
2022 is our 40th year of providing care and support to the people of Lincolnshire, so this is a perfect way to celebrate and help us raise money to be able to continue doing this for many more years to come.
Your sponsorship money will make a real difference to patients and families across Lincolnshire who are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. Your fundraising will help to ensure that St Barnabas Hospice can care for more patients and families near you, every day of the year.
By way of example, every £14.02 raised will enable one of our nurses to provide one hour of specialist at-home care to a patient living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.
