Join #TeamStGiles to take on our skydive challenge!

This is a tandem skydive, which is the easiest way to make your first skydive. It means you’ll be in a dual harness, guided by your instructor throughout the whole jump.

You must be over 16 years to take part. Under 18s will need parental or guardian consent. This is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience, feed your adrenaline and raise vital funds for local people, and their loved ones, living with a terminal illness.

The skydive takes place throughout 2024 in rural Whitchurch, Staffordshire.

Peter Norman carried out a tandem parachute jump, raising more than £500 for St Giles Hospice.

He said: “I really enjoyed skydiving for St Giles – it was a big adrenaline rush, far better than any rollercoaster ride you can go on and the views are just phenomenal. It’s just a massive buzz.

“It’s so satisfying to challenge yourself with such a unique experience – especially when you’re doing it in aid of such a great cause.

“I did my jump in memory of my dad, who died at home with lung cancer in 2003 supported by St Giles palliative care nurses. It allowed him to be at home with his family right to the end, which made such a difference to him and we’re grateful that he got that opportunity.”
