September's Skydive/ Now November Skydive

Due to mechanical problems with the aircraft on Sunday 3 September 2017 we have had to re-arrange this fundraiser.  New date for this event iis Sunday 26 November 2017

We are delighted to have a team of fundraisers for ‘September’s November Skydive’.

The team are taking this leap to support the Molly Watt Trust and those living with Usher Syndrome, the most common cause of congenital deafblindness.

Please consider sponsoring them for their time and commitment to the cause.

September's SkyDive

We are delighted to invite you to join us on Sunday 3rd September 2017 at http://skydivesibson.co.uk to take part in this exhilarating activity.

We are looking to have a small team of 10 if possible:

The cost of the skydive is £200 per person - we require a deposit of £100 to secure your place.

On receipt of your deposit we will set up a BT Donate account for you to get sponsorship - everybody will be expected to cover the cost of the dive either personally or through sponsorship - we would like all skydivers to raise in excess of the cost of the dive.  If the cost of the dive is not covered via sponsorship by the end of August 2017 you will not take part and any sponsorship monies will not be returned.

The maximum weight for skydivers is 15 stone 7 for those who enquired.

It would be fantastic for MWT to raise funds from this event, however, our main objective is to bring people together and for all involved to enjoy the day.

If you'd like to take part but would have difficulty in finding the initial deposit but believe you could raise in excess of £200 please contact us

For those who have paid their deposits please be assured your BT Donate accounts will be set up very soon.
