Richard Stilgoe Skydive

Take part in Team Orpheus bespoke Skydive Day and experience an adrenaline rush reaching speeds at 125mph from 10,000ft or 15,000ft above the ground. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience!

Date: Monday 1 May 2017

Deposit of £50 & a minimum fundraising target of £395 to cover the cost of participation OR self funding £225 to pay for skydive & 100% of funds will go directly to Orpheus.


To take part all you have to do is sign-up online via the Go Skydive website. There are then two options for payment:

1)      Self-funding: A total of £225 to pay for the skydive yourself, then 100% of any funds you raise will go directly to Orpheus.

2)      Deposit & Fundraising Target: £50 deposit to secure your place, with a minimum fundraising target of £395. That way you can be sure that the cost of your participation is covered, and at least half of the funds you raise will go to supporting Orpheus. Please note that on selecting this option you must have reached and delivered your sponsorship money to Orpheus two weeks prior to your Skydive otherwise you are at risk of losing your place.

Using your own place: If you have already booked your own Skydive, even if it’s on a different date to our bespoke Skydive Day, you can still join Team Orpheus and raise funds for us. There is no minimum amount we ask you to raise, but we suggest you set yourself a target to help raise as much as you can for Orpheus. You will still receive fantastic support from our fundraising team!

What previous fundraisers say:

“It was a once in a lifetime opportunity that was facilitated by Orpheus. It was well organised and the just giving page was so helpful. Loved the skydive so much I want to do it again!”

“I did the skydive because it was something absolutely crazy and I thought what better reason to jump out of a plane than for charity!”
