Take part in your very own tandem skydive challenge for Mid and North East Essex Mind – a tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires only 30 minutes of training before you jump strapped to your instructor! The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph! It is a truly unforgettable experience.

Book your place here and in the charity selector box find us under the ‘Mental and Physical Conditions’ category and select ‘Mid and North East Essex Mind’ from the charity drop down list. You can then pick your preferred day to do the jump.

Minimum sponsorship £395
