Skydiving to support the DPT Charity

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in Charity, News on 13th July, 2021

Challenge yourself and take on a 15,000ft tandem skydive in 2021 to raise money to support our mental health and learning disability services. The DPT Charity have teamed up with Skydive Buzz, based at Dunkeswell Airfield in Honiton who will provide you with everything you’ll need to have an unforgettable jump.

There is a dedicated time slot for our charity which is on Saturday 25 September at 10am, although other dates are available.

Could you take on the challenge?

Jump for Free

All you have to do is commit to raising £395 (or more) in sponsorship which is broken down into three amounts:

  • £50 non-refundable deposit to book your jump (you can claim this back through sponsor money)
  • £200 balance to Skydive Buzz on the day of jump (by cash or card, taken from sponsor money)
  • £145+ minimum goes to the Devon Partnership Trust Charity (on the day of jump, by cheque which can be post-dated)

What are the fitness requirements?

You don’t have to be super fit to skydive, but you do need to be generally in good health. The standard upper weight limit is 15 stone / 95 kilos fully clothed. Please call Skydive Buzz if you are between 15 and 18 stone. The minimum age is 16 years and there is no upper age limit. If you are aged between 16 and 18 you must obtain a parent or guardian’s consent. For more information and full terms and conditions please visit www.skydiveukltd.com.
