Raise money for Marie Curie with a parachute jump

Marie Curie Cancer Care has a number of parachute jump slots available at Chatteris Airfield, March and is laying down the gauntlet to Cambridgeshire daredevils searching for the ultimate thrill in 2013.

You don’t need to emulate Felix Baumgartner and jump from the edge of space to feel the thrill of a parachute jump this year!

Marie Curie is offering adrenaline junkies the chance to experience exceptional free fall, heading towards the earth at 120mph, while strapped to a sky diving instructor.

Enjoy the tranquillity as the parachute deploys and you gently descend back to terra firma, while taking in the stunning Cambridgeshire countryside.

Full training will be provided by the jump school on the day, so you’ll be fully prepared to throw yourself out of the plane at 12,000 feet!

Our parachuting jumps are organised by the London Parachute School, professionals in skydiving challenges with over 25 years of experience.

Registration costs are £50, and if you hit your fundraising target, you can jump for ‘free’. The minimum sponsorship to take part in a tandem jump is £400.

Last year’s parachute jumps in East Anglia successfully raised over £11,000 for the charity, which equates to 550 hours of nursing care.

This year alone, in Cambridgeshire our Marie Curie Nurses will provide over 200,000 hours of nursing care in the county. This vital care makes it possible for those who are seriously ill with cancer and other terminal illnesses to choose to stay in the comfort of their own home at the end of their life, rather than in a hospital.
