Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer and some 2,000 people are looking for a potentially lifesaving blood stem cell donor each year. DKMS are dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and blood disorders. The DKMS mission is to provide a matching donor for every blood cancer patient in need of a blood stem cell donation.

To make this happen DKMS raise awareness, recruit and retain potential blood stem cell donors to provide a second chance of life, raise funds to match donor registration costs, and improve blood cancer therapies with their own research.


Why don’t you complete a tandem skydive in aid of DKMS?!

Tandem skydive for DKMS; and join the fight to save lives of those with blood cancers.

Be part of something amazing and help fund DKMS’ lifesaving work.

It costs £40 to register each new potential blood stem cell donor. Every penny received from your fundraising will be used to register new donors.

You can either jump with the Red Devils the Army Parachute Display Team; joining one of their tandem events in Salisbury or Nottingham 2020 dates are listed on the Red Devil booking page .

Alternatively you can jump at one of the UK parachute centres on a date of your choice and raise money for this fabulous cause.

Jump costs

If jumping with the Red Devils the full jump cost is £300 for a standard Red Devil tandem skydive.  You would pay your own booking fee of £100 and then if you reach the fundraising target of £500 the charity will pay for your jump balance of £200.

If you would prefer the flexibility of jumping from a parachute centre near you the costs vary according to location this can cost from £230-£290. The booking fee that you would pay yourself is £50, the charity will then cover the balance cost (£180-£240) if you reach your fundraising target of £500 before your jump date.

Alternatively you can pay for all of your jump costs yourself in 2 or 3 payments (including the booking fee) and then raise as much money as you can for the charity.

You will need to reach your £500 target no later than x6 weeks before the jump date.   If you do not reach your target you will be expected to pay for your jump balance yourself.
