Local company raises charity funds through freefall
Five employees of the Plymouth company Independent Utilities (IU) are taking to the skies next weekend to raise money for charity by hurling themselves out of a perfectly good airplane.
The five will, weather permitting, be tandem skydiving at Dunkeswell Airport, Honiton.on Saturday 1st December.
“The idea for the skydive came at a team building session. We all decided to set ourselves some personal goals that we wanted to achieve by Christmas 2012. Five members of staff all wrote down “complete a skydive” so I went ahead and booked them on it,” IU Director Chaz Lawrence said.
The goal is to raise a total of £2000 for selected charities and the five are well on their way to reaching the goal, having collected more than £1700 so far with the fundraising continuing until December 1st.
