If running, trekking, cycling and swimming are too tame for you then why not consider a more extreme challenge? Take on the act of ultimate bravery for children with half a working heart and feel the rush of the wind in your hair as you fly through the clouds at up to 120mph.

For many people, skydiving is a once in a lifetime, bucket list experience. We’ve teamed up with Skyline Events so that you can experience the thrill of a skydive whilst raising money for Little Hearts Matter. With Skyline centres all over the UK you can skydive at an airfield near you on the date of your choice. All jumps take place with BPA (British Parachute Association) instructors.

Skydives have a minimum sponsorship target of £395 at most airfields (£450 in Scotland and Northern Ireland) – this covers the cost of your jump as well as a donation to LHM, and anything you raise above the target will come straight to us as well. This means you get to skydive for free! Alternatively, you can choose the self-funding option which means you cover the cost of the skydive yourself and then all your sponsorship comes directly to LHM. There is no minimum sponsorship target for self-funding skydivers.

If you’re ready to take the plunge for children with half a working heart, you can go ahead and book on Skyline’s website here!

To find out more about skydiving, visit Skyline’s website or fill in your details below and we will send you an information pack in the post. Your information pack will include more information on the types of skydive available as well as the locations of airfields around the country and how to book.

    Children with half a working heart catch colds and coughs just like other children of the same age but of course when you already have a reduced energy level and less oxygen travelling around your body it can knock the children for six. Parents may notice that their child is a bit more cyanosed, a bit bluer, and that they may be a bit more breathless than normal. Keep the children well wrapped up and snug and warm, give them Calpol if their temperature is high, keep the fluids going, small amounts of nourishing food every couple of hours and lots of opportunity to sleep will all help a child recover. HOWEVER, if they have a high temperature for a couple of days or their breathlessness or colour becomes worse take them to the GP for a check-up. If the infection is Viral there will be no point in antibiotics but if the GP thinks antibiotics will help they will be prescribed. If you are worried at all always get your child checked by a doctor. ... See MoreSee Less
