Christine Mellor, area manager for ChildLine, said: "For the past 25 years, ChildLine has offered a lifeline for vulnerable children. "Whatever the concern, wherever children need us, we have been there to offer advice and support.
"Over the past 25 years, we have counselled 2.6 million children across the UK.
"To continue that work, we need your help and support too."
Solo or tandem skydives are available and participants must be over the age of 16.
Those who take part can jump from one of 22 sites across the country, including Brigg and Bridlington.
No experience is necessary, as full training will be given, and the jump is free if participants raise £395 of sponsorship.
