The sky’s the limit:
charity skydive raises over £1,000
On 12 July, six of our brave (or mad!) team members took on a skydive to raise money for Leicester-based charities Hope Against Cancer and LOROS hospice.
Soaring 13,000 feet above Sibson Airfield, Phil Pepper, Mark Platt, Andrew Wilkinson, Oscar Ciaurro, Natalie Wilusz and Nikky Thorneycroft made the nerve-wracking leap for the two deserving charities.
Hope Against Cancer aim to improve treatment and provide better outcomes for patients through supporting vital research in Leicestershire and Rutland. Set up in 2003, the charity has helped 60 research projects in their mission to tackle a multitude of cancers.
Each year, LOROS Hospice cares for over 2,500 people throughout Leicestershire and Rutland. The support they provide is free and full of compassion, whether it be for their terminally ill adult patients or their family and carers.
Andrew Wilkinson, our partner, said:
“After hearing about the incredible work that both Hope Against Cancer and LOROS do across the East Midlands, we knew that they would be the perfect choices for our charity skydive.
“We’re so proud that the event has raised over £1,000. It certainly makes all the nerves we felt before the jump worth it! Every donation will help these wonderful charities to continue the essential work they do. Thank you to all those who have donated, we’re truly grateful for your support.”
