Leap for a Wish is back

The When You Wish Upon a Star Leap for a Wish is back by popular demand! In 2020 we held our first national skydive, with amazing supporters across the UK signing up gather up all of their courage and throw themselves out of a plane to raise money for our incredibly courageous Wish children.

Our 2021 Leap for a Wish Skydive will be held at jump sites across the country on Saturday 17th April 2021. We ask that our skydivers pay a £70 deposit upon registration, and commit to raising a minimum of £325 to grant a magical Wish for a Wish child with a life threatening illness.

Natalie, one of our previous Wish children who is now all grown up, took on our 2020 Leap For a Wish Skydive for When You Wish Upon a Star in 2020 and told us: “One thing dawned on me on the plane journey up to 15,000ft – it wasn’t scary, because I knew I was going to be safe, and that’s when it truly dawned on me as to how vital When You Wish Upon a Star is. It’s about helping children enjoy life for as little of as long as it is, because their safety net isn’t there. I’m so so pleased I completed the jump, and the sense of achievement was truly immense, and most importantly I’m so happy that I managed to give back in what little way I could to a charity that changed my life when I was a teenager.”

To sign up to take on your own skydive, please contact Heather on heather.kelly@whenyouwish.org.uk or call 01663 766 744. Natalie Marsh Skydive
