Who we are:

The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation (JTYAF) is a registered charity which was set up in 2008 in memory of Lieutenant John Thornton who was tragically killed in Afghanistan at the age of 22.

What we do:

John’s Foundation encourages and supports young people to ‘climb as high as they can dream’, by providing scholarships and bursaries to fund their training and personal development.   The JTYAF has no paid staff, no premises and is run on a purely voluntary basis.

Why we need you:

Without the kindness and generosity of our supporters none of this would be possible. Every pound that you raise will make an important difference to the lives of young people, helping them to develop their talents, fulfil their potential and follow their ambitions.


A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.


You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.


OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!
