Tandem skydive - 1 January 2024

You’re braver than you think! | View on map

A tandem skydive

Our 2024 skydives are now available to book – we have a very limited number of places so be sure to sign up quick!

Imagine…

…standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 or even 15,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.

Imagine being able to do the highest skydive in the UK, whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help Princess Alice Hospice! Stop imagining; it’s real and it’s happening throughout next year and you can be part of it.

Why not jump on a special day, a big birthday or in memory of a loved one? For some inspiration, watch this video of our brave supporter Tony skydiving for the Hospice on his 80th birthday.

The maximum weight for a tandem skydive is 18 stone fully-clothed and there are no upper age limits but if you are aged 16 or 17 you must be accompanied by an adult.

Important: please download and read our enquiry pack before you sign up to ensure you meet all the requirements.

Do you love your garden?  Do your friends tell you how lovely it is? Or how unique it is? It’s very likely other people will want to visit your garden too. You can support Princess Alice Hospice by opening your own much loved garden.

Opening your garden to the public may seem daunting at first, but you’re not only giving people a great day out – you’re also raising money to help us deliver our compassionate care. What’s more you’ll be joining a community of other like-minded garden owners and volunteers, all passionate about great gardens and great cake!

So whether your garden is big or small, crazy or calm,  if you think it has quality, character and interest, we’d love to hear from you and arrange a visit so you can apply to be part of the scheme.

  • Why would I open my garden? – There are many reasons that people open their gardens. To show off their hard work, to inspire or educate others, to share their passion for gardening and often for fundraising. People enjoy the experience so much that they continue to open their garden each year.
  • How would people be able to access my garden? – Entry would be via tickets that will be sold via Princess Alice Hospice.
  • What dates would I have to offer? – Dates are not confirmed but there will be a variety of dates from March-September, though we will aim to group gardens in areas at the same time so our supporters can hop from one to another.
  • My garden is tiny – No need to worry, great things come in small packages!
  • I have a pond/pool – We will advise any visitors of the risks and precautions they must take.

March through to September

Men’s grief is no less intense than women’s, but research shows it often goes unseen, unspoken about or misinterpreted, which can result in men not receiving the care and compassion they need. Events such as Talk the Walk are vital for raising awareness that everyone deserves the support they need when going through bereavement.

Our annual Talk the Walk event, enables everyone to come together to open up and take on the challenge of either a 4-mile or 10-mile walk with friends, family or even go solo.

You will then end the day watching a rugby game of Esher v Wimbledon, with a complimentary burger and a nice cold pint or soft drink – Mmmm delicious!
