Every day, Dorothy House Hospice Care supports around 700 families affected by cancer, motor neurone disease and other life threatening conditions. It is the major charity providing free specialist nursing care at home for people with life-threatening illness over a 700-square-mile area including Bath, north and west Wiltshire and north east Somerset. Most of our care is provided in people’s own homes, as that is where the majority of our patients prefer to be. Short-term care, out-patient and day patient services are provided at the hospice in Winsley, near Bath. To make sure patients have the best possible quality of life, pain and symptom relief, respite for carers, emotional and spiritual support, and day patients sessions are all provided free of charge.
You do not have to be super fit or tough to do a Tandem Skydive, but you must be in generally good health.
You must be at least 16 years of age and if you are under 18 you will require a parent or guardian's consent. There are no formal upper age limits to Tandem Skydiving, so long as you are in good health. All parachutists will be required to sign a declaration of medical fitness. In the case of any person aged 40 or over, a BPA Medical Certificate signed by a doctor is required. This will be forwarded to you if you make a booking.
The upper weight limit is 15 stone (95 kg) for males and 13 stone (83 kg) for females. Please contact us with details of your height if you are near this limit.
