This year, we might be taking our devotion to “The Cloud” too far. That’s because in October we will literally be entering the clouds in a charity team skydive.
It seemed like such a good idea when one of the team suggested it during some after-work drinks earlier in the year. But now, as we seem to be accelerating through the summer faster than freefall, the daunting reality of what we agreed to do is striking home.
So on 6 October, six of us will be diving down to Netheravon near Stonehenge, ascending to 13,500 feet, saying our prayers and jumping out of a plane.
David, Andy and Jack will be leading the way as they have each skydived before. And all eyes will be on Chris, as he caught the flu just before our last charity event and had to pull out of a half marathon.
What’s our skydive in aid of?
This year we will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. A well-known charity, they provide support to cancer victims from the moment of diagnosis, through their treatment and beyond.
With 50% of the UK population expected to be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, it is something that affects us all. So we are proud to be raising money to assist with the good work that Macmillan do.
What can you do?
We are not asking you to jump out of a plane with us, but it would be fantastic if you could make a donation. We have set up a Just Giving page where you can donate, and we are hoping to raise £3,000.
All donations are welcome and are hugely appreciated. Head over to our Just Giving page now to donate, and don’t forget to share our page on social media, help us spread the word.
