  • Sky Dive for PACT | PACT For Autism

    Sky Dive for PACT Take on an adrenaline challenge for PACT for Autism and help us to continue our valuable work supporting families with children and adults affected by Autism and similar disorders. ​ We aim to develop long term strategies with local communities that will improve living, working and social opportunities for people with Autism. Being a parent of a child with a disability can be very isolating and we at PACT for Autism pride ourselves on the wonderful friendships that have formed over the years, giving us all the strength and belief to do the best we can for our children. ​ Leaving the aircraft at 10,000ft you’ll reach speeds of 120mph (that’s as fast as a Golden Eagle diving for prey, by the way!) You’ll experience the rush and buzz of freefall strapped to a professional and experienced parachute instructor. Your instructor will release the canopy at about 5000ft and you can either help them steer the parachute home or leave them to do it for you, take in the scenery and ‘relax’! Glass of sherry, anybody? ​ PACT for Autism are offering these places at a reduced fee of £50 for a guaranteed sponsorship sum of £450 (PACT for Autism will reimburse the registration fee of £50 after the jump has taken place). ​ The usual Skydive fee is £250 but please note that any person who doesn’t meet their guaranteed sponsorship sum is then liable for the full cost of the Skydive. The sponsorship pledge target is £450. ​ For full details and the online registration form please click here .
