The York Teaching Hospital Charity is calling all daredevils to take on the challenge of a lifetime and jump out of a plane for help raise money for hospitals in our Trust! Skydives are extremely exhilarating and they provide a truly memorable experience.

The charity is giving you the opportunity to take part in a tandem skydive for free if you raise a minimum of £400. Why not share the fear and jump with a group of friends or work colleagues? We would love to hear from anyone looking for a challenge.

There are lots of skydive centres throughout the UK giving you a choice of jump locations and we can book you in on a date that's convenient for you. We can provide you with all the materials and support you will need during your fundraising such as providing t-shirts and sponsor forms.

For more information, please contact us by calling 01904 724521 or by emailing

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.


These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
