Events Upcoming events The Great BIG Horton Skydive It’s time to take on a great big skydiving challenge you’ll never forget and make a real difference for the Horton General Hospital that cares for you and your family. Join us on Friday 19 July at Hinton Skydiving Centre and after a short briefing you will be ready to jump from 13,000 feet, whilst strapped to the front of a Tandem Instructor who is there to control the skydive for you. It costs £85 to sign up, and we ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £350, which will make a real difference to the wards and departments at the Horton General Hospital. We can help you achieve this with sponsorship forms, online fundraising pages and collection tins.
