Imagine this… you’re sitting in the open doorway of an aircraft, your feet dangling below you. You look up and see the clouds above – you’re flying at 15,000 feet! Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go, falling forward into the clouds below, free-falling at over 120mph before the parachute opens and you begin to skydive over the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside.

Join St Barnabas Hospice  and Skydive Hibaldstow to achieve this experience of a lifetime on a day you will never forget. Make 2021 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.

The jump is a tandem skydive, which means you will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times. The jump and training are completed in one day and your instructor will be in control of your landing.
