Wing Walk

These were agreed by you at the time of booking your Wing Walk and are simply available here for reference

  1. Your £695 total sponsorship is made up of; a £50 booking fee paid by the participant which goes to CHSF; £399 wing walk and training fee; £246 sponsorship to CHSF. Any money raised over this amount is classed as additional sponsorship and comes directly to CHSF so every penny you raise over the minimum required is worth it.
  2. After you have booked and paid your £50 booking fee, the remaining £645 must be paid to CHSF two weeks after your wing walk date – see point 3 for online fundraising. This payment is non-refundable even if the wing walk doesn’t take place – we can however transfer your booking to an alternative date. If you do not believe you will manage to raise enough money to cover the minimum amount required on time we would encourage you to book an alternative date in the future, or you could pay the outstanding balance from your own account to ensure you can provide the sponsorship on time. This is in place to protect CHSF against loss of funds.
  3. If you raise money via an online fundraising page such as Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving all your sponsorship will come directly into our bank account.We will check your online fundraising page to ensure the money is raised by the deadline. If you have only raised part of the amount required on your online page then you will still need to pay the outstanding balance. Any offline funds need to arrive with CHSF two weeks after your wing walk. Alternatively, the money can be paid into your online sponsorship page by banking the money into your own account and then paying it onto the online page via your credit/debit card. If there is any money outstanding you will be expected to pay the difference.
  4. Should the weather be unsuitable for your wing walk on the day, we will be able to help you to rearrange a date with the airfield. Please allow a whole day for your wing walk as weather can change throughout the day and you may wing walk at a later time than previously booked.
  5. The maximum weight limit for this is 77Kg (12 stone 2lbs). By signing up to this event you are confirming that you are (or will be) under this weight limit on the day of your Wing Walk and understand that if you exceed this weight limit on the day you will not be allowed to take part. You must also be physically able to climb onto the wings of the bi-plane and you should have read and signed the fitness form provided by CHSF.
  6. All booking fees are completely non-refundable. However, the standard booking fee is valid for twelve months from the date of booking and should you be unable to complete your wing walk due to inclement weather, alternative arrangements will be made.
  7. I confirm that I am physically fit and have read and fully understood the fitness and medical requirements as detailed in the FAQs.
  8. I accept all the risks inherent in the experience and I agree for myself and my personal representatives to indemnify and hold harmless the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund against any claim or claims whether on my own account or from third parties arising out of any accident or incident resulting in any loss or damage (including bodily injury and death).

Skydive

By taking part in a skydive in aid of the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund you are bound by the following terms and agree:

  1. Your £395 sponsorship is made up of; a £50 booking fee made payable by yourself and goes towards your sponsorship; £209 skydive training fee and £136 donation to CHSF. Any money raised over £395 is classed as additional sponsorship and goes directly to the charity.
  2. That if you intend to cover the cost of the skydive with sponsorship money you will aim to meet the minimum fundraising target set by the charity, otherwise you will cover the remaining amount yourself, re-schedule or pull out and return the money to the sponsors.
  3. To make every effort to exceed the target.
  4. To send on any additional funds raised directly to the charity within the timeframe agreed. Failure to do so is considered theft.
  5. To make clear to sponsors if you are not paying for the skydive yourself, that the costs will be covered by the donations.
  6. That your contact details will be passed on to the charity and Skydiving centre. This is so that we may support you with your fundraising efforts and arrange to collect any additional sponsorship after the jump and so that Skydive Hibaldstow may contact you regarding your skydive. Your details will not be passed on by us to any other third party for any reason.
  7. Skydiving is an adventure sport and participation involves a risk of injury or death and you voluntarily accept all the risks inherent.
  8. That the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund charity will not accept any liabilities or responsibility for you taking part in a skydive.
  9. Your contact details, height and weight information will be shared with the Hibaldstow airfield in order to book you in for the skydive.
