Well done to the 11 super supporters from across Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Staffordshire for jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet at Tilstock Airfield in Shropshire and raising over £7k for Newlife.
Regional Fundraising & Awareness Manager at Newlife, Claire Kelly, said: “Ten Newlife supporters, plus myself, took to the dizzy heights of 10,000 feet and we could see across to the Isle of Man, as it was such a clear and fabulous day. Everyone smashed their target and myself and a few others have doubled ours. I’ve raised just over £1k! I’m so thrilled that between us we’ve raised in the region of £7k to support children in Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Staffordshire.”
“A huge heartfelt thanks to Michael and Rebecca from Barclays Manchester, Gill from Eccles Sixth Form College, Gill, Amanda and Samantha at SafeSpaces, Nick and Sophie at Crown Gas & Power, Nick from End Systems, and Rosie from Briggs Equipment for being Newlife heroes and changing children’s lives in their regions.”
