Charity skydives really baffle me, it's a fun, thrilling but slightly expensive thing to do so why is it acceptable to get friends/family to finance it? If you want to do something to raise money for charity then run a marathon or triathlon, get your body waxed (men) or shave off your hair then I'll sponsor you. If you want to do a skydive I think you should be paying for it yourself, if you ask me to sponsor you I'll tell you to p*** off and ask you to sponsor my next day out at a theme park or summer holiday.

I'm going to do this.
amazing please support this cause
Good price and £450 can easily be raised for charity. Don't forget an additional £30 for insurance. £65 in total to pay at checkout.
HotUKdealers: "any student discount??"
Advises £395 not £450 in the important information "You have four weeks from the date of your jump before your money to charity is due. Find enclosed in this pack a sponsorship form Just a quick note, when you book a skydive, Skyline will set up a Do It For Charity fundraising page for you, which you can then personalise by adding any photos or a little note to your supporters to help boost your funds to help reach your £395 target! Also when using Do It For Charity all of your funds come directly to Beat"

I’ve sponsored people doing sky dives.

I think people see a sky dive a challenge, not everyone is brave enough to do it.

I think people do charity dive to push themselves out of the comfort zone and raise fund for charity, I think raising fund for charity gives them extra push to sign up and do.

Yes sky diving is a hobby for some people

I’m afraid I personally wouldn’t want to skydive, I’m not got with heights which I found out when doing a balloon ride.

I was never good with heights before doing my first dive. My friend has been an instructor for 15 years and pushed us out the first time without warning which was good. The second time I was prepared and went out with him again. I do jump by myself now and only get nervous if I havnt jumped for a few months or so.

You can get used to most things in life if you give it time
Want to really make a difference? Then volunteer to help at a local charity, give up some of your time and get hands-on involved.

Oh wait, sorry you want to trek to Peru / Skydive / Swim with a dolphin and get others to pay for the priviledge, ahhh I get it now.

Oh and Beat have been in existance for nearly 30 years. As eating disorders seem to have multiplied over that time and more people are affected I'd question what use they are. A means of employment for virtue signallers !

I do agree with your comments but imagine if Ryan Air did skydrives; any charity participants would certainly earn their money............. I would willing sponsor a number of our current policians though for this....

That's what is what makes the business of charity so successful. The pigs can all feed at the trough, safe in the knowledge that anybody who questions or analyses their actions will be attacked as heartless by the brainwashed masses.

My advice to you is stop being a dick. If someone wants to take part and raise money for charity then good on them.
I don't think you can skydive for less than £65 anywhere so, on that basis, hot!

Do you even know how much of every pound they collect goes towards helping people? You'd be amazed at how little.

Oh and why am I a dick? Because you disagree with me? You carry on subsidising people fulfilling their bucket lists at your expense, I'll carry on calling out the hypocrisy of big charities.

Difference is I can debate without throwing insults. You should try it!

I don’t think it’s ok to have a go at Beat for an increase in Eating Disorders thats silly.

Beat are there here to help those with eating disorders and it is often incredibly difficult for people to get help. Beat do help. Have you looked at the website and the work they do.

Yes the percentage of donations spend on actual causes from many major charities can be quite shocking. That’s across the board.

I don’t think it’s fair to have a go at people deciding a different way to raise money and help a charity from the way you prefer.

Everyone is different some people are cash rich and time poor other a time rich and cash poor.

I’m sure every little helps

I totally agree with

Er, not quite. Very little of the money goes to charity and the cost to the NHS for any accidents is very high.

Get back to reading the Guardian! Here's a link where you can find what any charity actually spends it's money on.

charitychoice.co.uk/

For Beat, only 76p out of every pound goes on charitable activities. MAybe question why a quarter of any money you raise goes no where near helping anybody and then question how charity is a business designed to keep noses in troughs. You'd have to be a dick not to understand that !
What happens if you are unable to raise the minimum sponsorship money?

No it doesn’t but it seem unfair to single out this one particular charity

Also, if you are aged over 40 you may have to pay somewhere around £50+ for a parachuting medical certificate from your GP.
