Skydiving

There isn’t just one reason to take part in a skydive, there are 600,000! That’s the number of people living with epilepsy in the UK right now.

Event details

Experience the rush of a skydive from at least 10,000ft at 120mph while helping to improve the lives of everyone affected by epilepsy!

There are 2 different options when deciding how you would like to take part in aid of Epilepsy Action. You can either book through us with our skydive provider or you can organise your own.

Book through us

Our skydive provider has 22 sites across the UK and dates throughout the year. To book your place at one of these locations there is a registration fee of £70 and minimum sponsorship target of £395 (£450 in Scotland and Northern Ireland).

I attend the Bournemouth & Poole group of Epilepsy Action (Mark Adams), and would seriously love to do a Skydive, it's been a long time dream…!
I've suffered epilepsy since birth, it's been under control for many year's…
I would be grateful if I can get the Sponsor's forms to gain £400+ in sponsors and be happy to pay the £70 costs and take part in a dream I've always dreamt of, but I'm not sure how to achieve this and would be very grateful for any advice and help, to achieve a dream come true…
I don't know if I have to be a member of Epilepsy through a subscription of any sort…? If so, who and how do I achieve this please…?
