We are looking for people from all over the country to make a sponsored summer skydive for children that need it most in Barnardo's first ever skydive challenge!
- fill in the enquiry form for full details
Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 ft - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.
Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go - falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air.
Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help Barnardo's!
Stop imagining, it’s real and you can be part of it...

Transforming the lives of vulnerable children & young people in the UK.

Regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour, we believe that every child deserves the best start in life and chance to fulfill their potential.
