Skydive for Children's Heartbeat Trust
Enjoyment, exhilaration and adrenaline rushing is what you will experience as you jump 10,000ft out of a plane and freefall through blue skies for 7,000ft before your canopy opens and you glide to the ground and enjoy spectacular views across Northern Ireland. All in aid of local heart children!

The sky is the limit if you take to the air in our Tandem Charity Skydive on Sunday 23rd June 2019 in aid of Children's Heartbeat Trust. It is one of the most exciting and exhilarating things you will ever do!

We are delighted to team up with Moonjumper International for our Tandem Skydive were you will be attached to an instructor using a dual hardness.  The Moonjumper skycentre is an affiliated British Parachute Association centre and all instructors are BPA registered. 

By choosing to jump for Children’s Heartbeat Trust, your commitment, drive and fundraising efforts will make a real difference to children and young people living with heart disease in Northern Ireland.

Children's Heartbeat Trust is a local charity supporting children and young people with congenital heart disease (CHD) in Northern Ireland. Over 200 children are born heart disease in NI each year and it is the most common birth defect. We work closely with Clark Clinic at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children funding top medical equipment and initiatives.  For further information on our work, please visit www.childrensheartbeattrust.org 

What does it cost?  

A Registration of £40 per person(non refundable) secures your place.  We request that all participants raise a minimum of £400. This covers the full cost of the jump and sponsorship to the charity.  On the day of the jump participants need to pay an insurance policy fee of £40 cash on the day, which lasts one year.  A booking form is available by emailing [email protected]
