About Amelia’s Rainbow
Who We Are:
Amelia’s Rainbow supports children in Dorset with complex disabilities or serious, chronic or terminal illnesses. We create an environment full of fun, learning, achievement and memories. We were set up by a local family who lost their daughter Amelia to an aggressive form of childhood cancer in 2010. Amelia was fun loving and generous to the core. Whilst receiving treatment Amelia used some of her money to buy an Xbox for one of her friends with whom she had spent time within the hospital. She appreciated the gifts that she had benefitted from; but felt that other children should also have the same. After her passing, her parents Karl and Chantel used her inspiration to help other families in need. Her generosity & kindness still inspires others to better the lives of children in Dorset.
What We Do:
We support over 150 children thanks to the fundraising and donations from wonderful businesses, individuals and trusts. It is our aim to enable children and their families to be able to have fun through the tough times that many face whether that is by fundraising a Rainbow Gift for family days out, a special trip, leisure activities or providing requested items that enhance the child’s fun, learning or memory making. Our families are also able to book and spend time at our Amelie’s Retreat Holiday Home and Beach Hut to take quality time together as a family. These facilities are fully funded by donations.
Why We Need You:
Amelia’s Rainbow is a needs driven charity and we are seeing an increase in the number of families that require our support. We believe in working within our community to create a network of support and provide a conduit to allow others to help families in Dorset.This year is our 10 year anniversary for Amelia’s Rainbow and our aim is to raise funds for a wheelchair adapt caravan. We have approximately 30 families that are unable to use our current caravan, with a new facility we hope to offer them the same opportunities we do with other families we support. All our income comes from donations and due to the pandemic, we have seen donations drop so your support is appreciated more than ever.

How it works
Booking a charity jump

We’ll ensure you get a charity discount of £25 off our 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydives when your charity is selected. Determine if your charity expects you to meet a fundraising target or if you will be self-funding the skydive.
You’re all set to start fundraising once you’ve booked your skydive! Your charity can help you with fundraising, and we’ll be available to answer any questions you have about the skydive!
Build your team
Skydiving is even more exhilarating when shared with friends, why not invite your friends and family and create a shared experience with memories that will last a lifetime.
Select Your charity
Choose one of our 300 registered charities or jump in support of your own charity. Each registered charity will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.
Book your Skydive
Book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-booked days that you are more than welcome to join. See our date picker tool below.
OK you're all set - We recommend you set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice.

You can still jump for them!
Non-partnered charities at GoSkydive offer a unique opportunity to make a positive impact while experiencing the exhilaration of skydiving. These charities, though not officially affiliated with GoSkydive, collaborate to raise funds and awareness for various causes. Participants can choose a cause close to their hearts and raise money individually or as part of a team, diving headfirst into an adrenaline-fuelled adventure that also helps those in need.
Our non-partnered charities still receive the same great discount of £25 off a 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydive that our partnered charities do. All you need to do is pay the balance of your skydive yourself and fundraise as much as you can for your chosen charity on the side!
