In a thrilling display of courage and commitment, the first of our three troops of skydivers embarked on an adrenaline-fueled morning near Salisbury on Saturday, 30th September. Not only did they face their fears, all twelve from the Shoreham office completed 15,000 ft jumps in aid of Focus Foundation.
Laurence Blackledge, one of our intrepid skydivers, reflected on his journey of personal growth: "Four years ago, I was scared of flying, and I wouldn't even think about getting on a plane. But this experience was amazing!" Laurence's transformation from a fear of flying to leaping from an aircraft at 15,000ft is truly inspiring.
Another member of our daring troop, Guy Archibald, had this to say about the adventure: "I had a fantastic time, I would recommend it to anyone and there's still time to donate."
Flo Everett, who brought real energy to the day commented “I have always wanted to go skydiving, and to be able to raise money to do it made it even more special. Thank you, Focus Foundation, for organising the event and thank you to everyone who was able to donate. It is an experience I will never forget!”
Indeed, there is still an opportunity to support our skydiving heroes. Your donations will go a long way in helping us make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Join us in celebrating the bravery and determination of our team members who proved that the sky is not the limit when it comes to making a difference.
