Looking to do something crazy to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care? Why not take on a tandem skydive from 10,000ft!

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.

You can also choose the date you want to jump, perfect if there is a special reason behind why you want to do this 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.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 25 shops.

£60 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
