Please email or use the message link on our facebook page, using the subject title ‘Sky Dive' with the postal address you’d like us to send it to. We will try to respond ASAP. 

You will be required to fill in the relevant boxes, on your sponsorship form, to include your full name, chosen payment % option, (explained under Payment Options) how you paid your deposit, i.e. online or by post & how much in total you have raised, both on and offline.

Payment Options:


A deposit of £50 is required upfront to secure your place.  Please use the GIVE button found at the top of this page Or alternately, you can send us a Personal Cheque, Bankers Drafts, Company Cheques, Building Society Cheques or Postal Orders. Please email or message us, using the contact links for the forwarding address & who to make it payable too. 

Sky-Dive Payment Options:

The cost of a tandem skydive, on either days; Saturday March 22nd or Sunday March 23rd is £200 per person

You can either chose to pay 100% of the cost of your tandem skydive (£200) or partly raise the money through sponsorship, either 100%, 75%, 50% or 25%. E.g. 75% means  you agree to pay £150 for your jump yourself. 50% would be £100 or 25% is £50 deposit, and then raise the remaining balance by collecting sponsorship. 

Complete the appropriate % payment option boxes, found at the top of your Sunni Mae Sponsor form, including your full name & how much you have raised, both on and offline. 

There is also an obligation to raise a further £80 for charity. Please Don't let this put you off!!! This should be easily achievable... most people know more people than they first think! Honestly!... Sit down & write a list of people you know, who you can ask! There's really no harm in asking! not to mention its a great way to get in touch with long lost friends! 

Example.. In my first week of shoving it under people's noses, (a handful of family members and a few team mates at work) I have already raised the full cost of my jump! additionally I have started to raise sponsorship online from my fb friends! & I still have 150+ days left to go! So get out there & mingle!..  Be direct! What's the worst they can say?.. No!.. Well then! They're certainly not going to think bad of you are they?..

Also, if you fall way short of raising enough money offline, there is a get out clause! If you change your mind before the 20th Dec, then, just don't collect any of your sponsorship money.. (May exclude online sponsorship - please check their refund policy) At least you raised awareness & had a go! The £50 deposit is refundable before the Dec deadline and then transferable there after. 

It's such a great cause, and an amazing experience... one you'll probably never forget! at one of the most highly recommend skydiving centres with one of the most professional accredited teams there is! 

On the Day

Hand in all forms, including your completed sponsorship form and all sponsorship money collected offline, along with the remaining cost of your sky-dive to the administration team upon arrival. 

This can be paid by cash, cheque, postal order or bankers draught but cannot be post-dated!

Note: If paying by Cheque, please write the correct number of cheques for the amount payable. For example if £150.00 is due and you have a £50 cheque guarantee card then you will need to write 3 cheques. No cheque guarantee card required.  If someone else is writing/guaranteeing cheques on your behalf ensure your name (i.e. the participant's name) is clearly written on the reverse of the cheque.

Separate the money you are using to complete your outstanding payment on your jump, out of the sponsorship money raised, and then add it to the relevant % option amount you agreed to pay for your jump, so the total amount due to complete payment on your sky-dive on the day will be £150.

Ensure you have raised a minimum of 40% (£80) for charity! (Includes all online sponsorship raised too remember!)

If you have any concerns about any of this, anytime up to the day of your jump, then please email who will be happy to talk you through it and put your mind at rest!

Any funds raised using an online fundraising charity page, (excluding the Fundrazr 'GIVE' button link on our website), will NOT be used as part payment towards the cost of your jump.

About the Charity

Sunni Mae Charity Trust

The Sunni Mae Trust was founded in Ireland, to help a little girl called Lily-Mae Morrison who had stage 4 Neuroblastoma. This is a rare form of cancer that affects 1 in 100,000 children. Lily-Mae is now 5 years old; she loves dinosaurs and dancing, and lives in Claregalway, Ireland with her parents Jude and Leighton (who also like dancing). Leighton was originally from Derby in the UK and so together, their family and friends have since been campaigning to raise money and awareness.
Neuroblastoma is a very rare and aggressive childhood cancer, usually only affecting children under the age of 5. There is little known about this cancer, and there is little funding available to help research that ever elusive cure.

Neuroblastoma’s mortality rate is extremely high at 70%, but this is decreasing all the time with new treatment and trials taking place in prevention, as often patients relapse, and to date, both in the UK and Ireland, there is no treatment available once this happens. Once a child relapses, the only option would be for them to get treatment abroad, i.e. America or Germany mainly, at the cost of £500,000!

I am happy to report that last month, Lily-Mae and her family received the great news that she is now in remission, after a year and a half of aggressive chemo. She is now flying out to Michigan in the USA every few weeks, as part a medical trial which will hopefully prevent her from relapsing.

This would not have been achievable without your help and support, for that we are all eternally grateful!!

If Lily-Mae is successful in surviving this terrible disease, then all money raised will joyfully be donated to the Neuroblastoma Organisation to help research and support other families going through the same nightmare.
