I'm enquiring at the minute about doing a sky dive for charity, torn between clatterbridge cancer research and the rainbow trust for children.

I've looked on a couple of websites that offer a 'FREE charity sky dive' but when going through the booking process, there is often a fee upfront around 70-100 then an additional amount to be paid on the day of around 300-500. Is this deducted from the amount I raise for charity? Surely not, but i can't see how else it could be 'FREE'!

It really is something I'd love to do, and although it would look great on my CV, it would also be a chance to actually give something to a needy cause that do so much for other less fortunate people!

PS: Would you sponsor me? cool

I dont think this is "FREE" or everyone would be doing it?

When I've done stuff for Marie Curie they've wanted a deposit of around 10 when ! booked then I had to raise at least 100 (or whatever amount) in sponsorship in order to take part. It was only the 10 that I had to pay up front the rest was payable on the day or through a donation website.

The very best of luck for whichever way you go.



I have to say, having watched that programme the other week about the London Marathon and the runner's nominated charity only getting around 1 out of every 6 that he raised (the other 5 disappeared into LM's pocket and they weren't too keen on accounting for it!) I would not go through any third party try and go direct though your nominated charity.
