Skydive - Anytime

Date & Time: Anytime - Book your own date
Location: Movenis Airfield, Coleraine

Have you got what it takes to freefall from 15,000 feet? If the answer’s yes, then we’d love it if you took to the skies to help raise vital funds for our work across Northern Ireland. Almost 90% of our funding comes from the public, so we urgently need your help to continue delivering our care and support services for people with chest, heart and stroke conditions.

You can pick your own date and either make the jump on your own or as part of a group from your office, school, college or club. The sky-dive will be organised by Skydive Ireland, a professional skydiving centre based in Coleraine, and you’ll take part in a tandem jump, where you’ll be strapped to an experienced instructor.

Minimum age is 16 and maximum age is 80. Under-18s must have written parental/guardian consent before taking part. The weight limit is 15 stone/95kg for those over 5ft5/166cm or 13 stone/83kg for those under 5ft4/165.

Suggested minimum sponsorship is £500.

"I worked for NICHS from 2019 until 2021 in supporter care and care services as a stroke family support coordinator. When the girls in fundraising mentioned a skydive in the office back in 2019 I had to put my name forward - I'm always looking for the next adrenaline fuelled challenge. Unfortunately after family and friend's kind donations to my fundraiser, my skydive due to originally take place in December 2019 was cancelled many times as a result of storms and lockdown. Thankfully, on Saturday 7th May I was able to fall from the sky in a tandem skydive two and a half years later and I loved EVERY second of it (as you can see from my grinning face). I am terrified of heights but wow I would jump out of that plane again any day!! The staff were so reassuring and good craic and I wish I could relive it all over again. So, what's next?

The skydive was the next step in my attempt to overcome my fear of heights and it provided the perfect opportunity to raise vital funds for a fantastic charity. The skydive was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. We would like to thank everyone who supported us and gave so generously. We can’t believe the total has reached £7857 so far and the fact I have now conquered my fear of heights is an added bonus!
