Benenden health staff plunge 10,000 feet in charity sky dive
12th July 2013
Later this month, staff from York-based mutual healthcare provider benenden health will be sky-diving from 10,000 feet to raise money for their local charity of the year – Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal.
On 28th July 2013, three brave employees from benenden health will travel to Bridlington Airfield to make the big jump – freefalling at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour in order to raise as much money as possible for charity.
All donations go to benefit Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal – who work to enhance the services offered by Leeds Children's Hospital which looks after youngsters from birth to the age of 16 living across Yorkshire and beyond.
Hannah Watsham, Admin Service Delivery Manager at benenden health, who is taking part in the jump said: “We are all really excited about the sky-dive – but also nervous! It’ll be a great experience – and something which I’ll remember for a very long time.
“Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal is a really worthwhile charity and they do fantastic work for local children to make their stay in hospital as comfortable as possible. We are really glad to support them and are keen to raise as much money as we can.”
In the run-up to the event the team have been fundraising offline and online through a variety of activities. If you would like to make a donation visit: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/benendenhealth
