Charity Skydive Fund Raising with Young Womens Trust

Take the Young Womens Trust challenge and experience the thrill of a lifetime.

We are a small, dynamic charity that aims to improve lifelong opportunities for young women aged 16-30 by addressing the poverty, inequality and discrimination that many of them face.

 

We are particularly concerned about young women who have few or no qualifications; are unemployed or in precarious or insecure employment; and are on very low or no pay.

 

We have a proud history, having been founded over 150 years ago as YWCA England & Wales, but we have evolved and we now have a new focus and an innovative approach.

 

Our vision is of a society which respects and listens to young women, actively encourages their self-confidence and where they have the opportunity to be financially independent and participate fully.

 

Tandem Parachute Jumps

Leaving the aircraft at 10,000ft you’ll reach speeds of 120mph (that’s as fast as a Golden Eagle diving for prey, by the way!.) You’ll experience the rush and buzz of freefall strapped to a professional and experienced parachute instructor. Your instructor will release the canopy at about 5000ft and you can either help them steer the parachute home or leave them to do it for you and ‘relax’!

FUEL Surcharge

Due to the current fuel price increases (aviation fuel), several drop zones are now making a surcharge of up to £30 per person, should this be the case at your selected location London Parachute School will contact you and advise you of this prior to processing your booking. If you choose to jump at a drop zone that has added a fuel surcharge then you will have to raise that extra amount in addition to the £350 minimum amount to jump, eg if the drop zone you choose has added a fuel surcharge of £15 then you will need to raise a minimum of £365
