Region Sky Dive Fundraiser February 9, 2024

Ever wanted to feel the wind in your hair? Now’s your chance! In 2024 we want to raise money for our region by running a sponsored tandem sky dive. Money raised from this event will support girls and leaders across the north west. You don’t even have to be a member of Girlguiding to take part!

The event is booked for 2 June and will take place near Lancaster.

The cost of taking part (going to the sky dive company) is £230, this can be fundraised or paid for yourself.   If you fundraise for the entry fee, we ask that you aim to raise a minimum of £500 in total for the event.

£100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your place. Funds raised over the £230 then go to Girlguiding North West England!  We would ask that your deposit is paid by 26 Feb at the latest.  (If you sign up after this date you will need to provide your deposit within seven days).

You must be over the age of 16 to take part, you must weigh over 7 stone, but no more than 13 stone for female particiapants, or 15 stone for male.  You may also need a declaration of fitness form signed if you have a predisposed medical condition.
