Last month saw four of the bravest TW staff members sign up for the challenge of jumping 12,000ft out of an aeroplane in order to raise money for Certitude, our firm’s Charity of the Year. The team were very excited (and equally nervous) to embrace the challenge and make a memory that will last a lifetime, whilst also raising funds for such a worthwhile cause.
Unfortunately, the first attempt didn’t quite go to plan, after a 6.30am start on a dark and gloomy Saturday morning they were turned away and told weather conditions were too bad to jump (Until now they hadn’t even thought about weather conditions) and had to rearrange. The second attempt was re-arranged for later in the month, not knowing it would be when the hurricane came and a pink sky filled the air….still they ventured to the skydiving centre full of optimism only to be told that London Air Traffic control laughed at the request at wanting to jump out a plane in such conditions. Finally….after the third attempt they were successful in the challenge. An impromptu visit on a Friday afternoon when conditions were perfect…Kevin set off in the morning and completed his jump followed by Katie, Steph and Leanne in the afternoon (over a beautiful sunset!)
In total the team raised over £1,600 for Certitude and are now planning their next adrenaline adventure!
