It was a calculated risk for local accountancy group Aston Shaw when 25 brave team members jumped out of a plane at 12,000ft reaching speeds of 120mph…
… but luckily for them they were attached to parachutes and skydiving instructors! All in a bid to help them reach the ambitious fundraising goal they’ve set themselves.
Aston Shaw, who are chartered certified accountants, recently joined the nook business network scheme to raise funds for the nook appeal to build a new children’s hospice for Norfolk.
The company’s 90 strong staff team has pledged to raise £30,000 through a variety of fundraising initiatives including their skydive challenge ‘One Jump EACH' which took place on the 20th August at Ellough Airfield, Beccles.
Natasha Carr, Aston Shaw Maketing Manager said: “Supporting a local charity is extremely important to us and EACH was chosen as our charity for 2015 almost unanimously by the team. Although we have offices spread out across East Anglia – our charity efforts are something that unites us and I am proud that so many staff are taking part in our skydive later this year.”
