Jump for Joy! Tandem skydiving!

Brighter Futures is the Trust's charity

We are looking for people from all over the south west to make a sponsored 10,000 feet tandem parachute jump on our behalf. 

You can either choose to jump on a date of your choice or join us on our Skydive Day - Jumping for Joy on Sunday 19 July 2015.

All Skydives will help raise funds for our Radiotherapy appeal which will help provide radiotherapy services in Swindon for cancer patients.

We need to raise £3 million in order to help cancer patients access radiotherapy treatment.

Please help us reach our target and sign up today!


How much do I have to raise?

We ask that you pay a non-refundable booking fee of £50.  After that you need to raise a minimum of £350 by your jump date.

£175 of your total will be paid to the jump centre to pay for your skydive; Brighter Futures receives the remaining £175 or more if you exceed the £350 target.

How do I sign up?

Contact Go Skydive on 01722 212069 or email holly@goskydive.com and see the GoSkydive website (www.goskydive.com/brighter-futures) for full details.

Once you have paid your £50 booking fee and decided on which day you will complete your Skydive all bookings will then be forwarded to Brighter Futures.

How will you help me?

We will then send you a fundraising pack to get you started.  This will contain details of how to set up an online fundraising page, will contain sponsorship forms, a list of materials you can use to support your fundraising and  some hints, tips and ideas to get you started.


How will the funds I raise be used?

Brighter Futures is a registered charity which helps Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to provide the best possible service that we can to our patients by investing money in added extras that fall outside of the NHS remit but that make a real difference to the lives of anyone who comes into contact with our services.

Each year hundreds of patients travel an average of 2,500 miles to receive essential Radiotherapy treatment.

At one of the most vulnerable times in their lives they make this journey away from their support networks.

We need to raise £3 million to purchase 2 Linear Accelerators, the equipment required to provide local people with a radiotherapy service in Swindon.
