Jump any day of the year

If you can’t join us for Skydive Week, choose your own jump date and raise vital funds for GOSH.

Our preferred skydive provider is the Sky Dive Centre who will co-ordinate all the logistics of your skydive. Register today for just £50 when you commit to a £395 sponsorship target.

Costings

We ask our skydivers to raise £395 two weeks before their jump date.

This is because Sky Dive Centre will invoice us for the cost of your jump beforehand.

If you haven’t raised the £395 then you can still take part - you’ll just need to pay for the cost of your skydive when you arrive. This is usually £185 - depending on the jump site.

Rare childhood diseases - the importance of research

Sadly, 75% of rare diseases affect children and one third of those affected will die before their fifth birthday.

There are hundreds of rare diseases currently without a cure. For many of those children, medical research is their only hope for finding new treatments. 

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) treats more than 200 different types of rare disease in children and young people. To continue its incredible work, GOSH relies on the support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and its amazing supporters like you. 

Thanks to state-of-the-art facilities at our new Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children, GOSH researchers are developing a stronger understanding of disease-causing genes. 

They’re driving forward revolutionary treatments and cures, from building new organs for transplant to correcting genetic mistakes - but there’s still a long way to go
