Skydiving Challenge 2016

28 November 2016. News.

The sky was no limit for our brave tandem skydivers at the weekend as they joined forces to raise money for our charity of the year, Mind. Jumping from 10,000 ft, our skydiving challenge is our latest adrenaline-fuelled fundraising event, having taken part in Tough Mudder back in September.

A huge thanks goes out to our kind sponsors, Elite Supplies and Twisted Pair, who helped us get this challenge off the ground. We were also supported by generous donations from family and friends which saw our team raise over £3,000.

Charity Chair, Benjamin Murray says: “The tandem skydive is such a great adrenaline rush and we were delighted that our sponsors Elite Supplies and Twisted Pair were both able to join us in taking the big leap of faith out of the plane. Supporting Mind and mental wellbeing has been really enjoyable this year. We’ve always championed creating good mental wellbeing in every workplace we create, so it’s been a good fit for our business”.

This challenge brings our fundraising for Mind to a close. Throughout this year we have taken part in a huge range of events and challenges and successfully raised nearly £10,000 for Mind. In the New Year we will be selecting a new chosen charity of the year, but in the meantime if you’d like to help the team raise even more money for Mind, please visit our JustGiving page
