Skydiving for big cats! - The Big Cat Sanctuary

Skydiving for big cats!


An amazing chance to fundraise for big cats!

Are you an adrenaline junkie?


We are over the moon to be hosting a charity fundraising day at Skydive Headcorn on Sunday 30th June. We have 10 places up for grabs so if you are an adrenalin junkie who’d like to raise some money for us, or you have always wanted a reason to jump out of a plane, this is for you!

If you need help putting together your jump package, the sales team at GoSkyDive are more than happy to assist you. They will ensure you get a charity discount of £25 from your 10,000ft skydive when your charity is selected.

A tandem skydive is an amazing experience which allows you to jump out of a plane securely attached to a very experienced skydiving instructor. After a training session lasting about 20 minutes the jump is made from the plane, followed by a freefall of 30 seconds before your instructor opens your parachute. The instructor remains in control at all times.

What does it cost?


The cost per person is £234 for the 10,000ft jump. The participant will need to pay a £50 non-refundable deposit when they book directly with GoSkydive.

The balance outstanding is to be paid in full at least 14 days prior to the day of the jump, again by the individual.

*You will need to pay the deposit and for your own camera packages.

Fundraising and payments


We would recommend you aim to raise around £750, we would like your fundraising to be a minimum amount of £500 for The Big Cat Sanctuary.

If you are able to pay for your own jump and wish to donate all funds raised to us then we would suggest using the fundraising option on JustGiving and set your target, search for The Big Cat Sanctuary as your charity and set your fundraising target there.

If you need your fundraising to cover the cost of your jump then take the crowdfunding option on JustGiving which will allow you access the funds to make the payments for the jump on due dates and allow you to donate the remainder to us as well.

Will you be fundraising for our Asiatic lions Sahee and Sonika?
