One Jump EACH

Aug 24, 2015

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, r​ecently 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.”
