We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise much-needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens. You are able to nominate to support a local branch or centre with your fundraising.

We will also provide you with a dedicated Facebook group to network with fellow cat-loving event participants and a branded yellow Cats Protection head buff, plus ideas, resources and support to help you fundraise.


On arrival you will be introduced to your tandem instructor who will take you through all the training required for you to do your skydive. This includes a talk about the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall and finally the position you need to adopt for landing. The training takes about 30 minutes and your instructor will be pleased to answer any questions that you may have.

For your jump we will provide you with a jumpsuit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into the dual harness.

You will be jumping from up to 12,000 feet. It takes around 15 minutes for the aircraft to reach altitude so you will have time to relax and enjoy the spectacular views.

Once at altitude, you are ready to go! You will be freefalling at 120mph for about 45 seconds. Your instructor will deploy the parachute by 5,000 feet. The parachute has dual controls so you can aid the instructor by spiralling the parachute around the sky.

Your instructor will take control of the parachute for the landing. All in all it is an experience guaranteed to take your breath away!

To commemorate your skydive you will be presented with a certificate at the end of the jump.
