Charity Skydives Bath
If you’re thinking of a way to raise money for a good cause, tandem skydiving for charity is a great way to do it.
It is not only admirable that you are brave enough to jump out of a plane at 15,000 feet and that people give generously to your cause – but you also get to have the most amazing life-changing experience. Thousands of charity skydives are done by GoSkydive each year, and here’s one – Zoe Ball’s jump for MNDA.
In doing a tandem skydive for charity, you’ll be doing something life changing that will attract people to sponsor your cause. A staggering half a million pounds was raised for good causes by GoSkydive in 2015, more than any other skydiving company in the UK.

Tens of thousands of people have chosen to jump with us. Here's some of what they say!
57, 53 and 31 year olds all did tandem jumps 7000 feet. Amazing experience. Professional, kind and patient staff. Even though the weather dictates the jumps, the team there kept us informed at all times. A number of times once you are kitted up, you are checked and double checked. This makes you feel very safe and reassured. The fun relaxed and totally safe tandem jumpers were perfect companions for jumping. Over one of the best days ever. I’m still buzzing about it the next day. Throughly recommended this high class company.
The buzz from free falling out of the plane was fantastic. Brilliant day well organised by the Skydive team.
An amazing experience, words can’t fully explain. I’m so so pleased I did it! I’d really recommend. Rich was fantastic and I felt safe couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to jump for the first time with! Thank you! And can’t wait to go again!!
That was an amazing experience !!! The team and organisation are superb!!
All done very professionally and with a smile always on. No fear, no doubts just fun and lots of adrenaline running through from the beginning to the landing 5****
GoSkydive in Salisbury is an incredible place, the whole team were so welcoming and the nicest people. I was quite nervous but I felt entirely safe and settled considering the fact I was jumping out of a plane. Had the most epic time with my instructor Alex today, he made me laugh and made me forget the nerves! 15,000ft checked off and I will be coming again as soon as I can.
I had a really great time at Tandem. We were in the clouds. eHighly recommend this experienc – myself and my husband loved it!
It was my first time skydiving and the whole experience was amazing from start to finish all the staff were really good made me feel welcome and helpful. The instructor (Henk) was so good can’t thank him enough and it was great to share my experience with him what a top guy. All the facilities are excellent also the camera packages are well worth getting, I’ll definitely jump again, if I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you to everyone at Go Skydive Salisbury.
I cannot praise the staff enough. Although the training is a serious matter, it was all given in a fun way. They are all so professional, and I am looking forward to jumping with them again in the future.
Massive thanks to instructor Chris. He took the time to explain everything to me right before the jump. I felt incredibly safe with him and wasn’t nervous at any point! The ground staff were also great. I cannot wait to come back!
I jumped with my team to raise money for Charity on Friday.
Although the weather was rather rubbish in the morning, which meant we were delayed by 5 hours, it was well worth the wait. The team also kept us in the loop and we had some yummy sausage sandwiches in the cafe.
I hate that I cannot remember the name of my tandem guy but he was amazing. Although there were some cheeky wind up merchants on the flight, he was super supportive and made me feel at ease. He made the experience magical as we did some fun spins and even flew through a cloud and saw a rainbow! When we landed I got a huge hug and he said how proud he was of how I did.
The first time I jumped I had a camera but it was nice this time around to go without as I could focus on the experience and not the camera if that makes sense.
This was my second skydive (8 years apart) and I can officially say I have the bug! I am now desperate to save up to get my licence. I think my instructors comment of ‘Welcome to my office’ whilst thousands of feet in the air probably did it.
I cannot recommend this enough. Don’t let your nerves put you off! It’s super safe and you are in the best hands.
Thank you Go Skydive! I will likely be seeing you again soon…
