3rd December 2021 Events image

You may have noticed that our usual Santa events have developed a more challenging twist for 2021!  So this year we challenge you to take on a tandem skydive from 10,000ft whilst wearing a Santa suit! What better way to put you in the festive mood than by jumping out of a plane as Santa?  It will be quite the spectacle to behold as multiple Santa’s fall from the sky in Perranporth!

Why not join St Julia’s Hospice Ward Sister, Lou Ranford, as she takes on this epic challenge to let her hair down, have some fun and raise much needed funds for our charity?

Situated on the beautiful cliffs of Perranporth, the Cornish Parachute Club is the only skydive centre in the UK that offers the beach as a drop zone! Climbing to 10,000ft you will be able to see the stunning views of the Cornish coast line before diving at 120mph towards the Atlantic.

There are only 3 exclusive dates to jump in a Santa Suit in 2021 – Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December – so don’t delay to sign up for this limited experience to raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care.

Can you do it? Yes you can!

If you are brave enough to take on a skydive and are over the age of 16 then this challenge is for you.

What if the weather is bad on the day?

Can I pick what time I jump?
