About Heartburn Cancer UK

Who We Are:

Heartburn Cancer UK is a small charity, formed following the death of Michael McCord from oesophageal cancer.  Michael was aged just 47.  He had suffered from heartburn for much of his adult life and, like many of us, took over-the-counter indigestion remedies frequently.  He was unaware that, in his case, this seemingly insignificant heartburn was a symptom of the cancer that would cause his death.

What We Do:
At Heartburn Cancer UK we work to raise awareness of oesophageal cancer and of the link between persistent heartburn (lasting for more than three weeks) and both this disease and a pre-cancerous condition called Barrett’s Oesophagus. Oesophageal cancer is the seventh biggest cancer killer in the UK and, like Michael, many of those who are diagnosed find out too late for treatment, meaning that the 5-year survival rate is only 15% – which is the worst in the world. We produce literature and run awareness campaigns that educate people about the early symptoms of oesophageal cancer and encourage them to seek advice from their GP rather than self-medicating.  This will enable earlier diagnosis and result in a better prognosis for suffers. We also facilitate support groups for suffers and their families, enabling people to share experiences and advice as well as providing phone and e mail support and online information through our website.
Why We Need You:
10% of people who suffer with heartburn regularly are thought to have Barrett’s Oesophagus without even realising.  It is only because of funds raised by supporters like you that we can continue spreading the simple, but life-saving message that persistent heartburn must be investigated – sooner rather than later.

How it works

Booking a charity jump

If you need help putting together your jump package, our Sales Team is more than happy to assist you. 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!


Step 1
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.

Step 2
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.

Step 3
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.

Step 4
Start fundraising

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.

Don't see your charity listed?

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!
