Miles4Mel Team Skydive to Boost Fundraising

Posted by Anne-Marie on July 21, 2017

Many of you will have seen our story last month about the team of Unilever Staff who cycled from Leatherhead to Gilwern to raise money in memory of their colleague Mel Jaggard.  Well a team of 6 of the staff also decided to Skydive to raise more funds.

Saturday 10th June saw us arrive at Hinton Airfield ready for the team to take a leap from 12,000 feet, but unfortunately although the day was bright and sunny it was far too windy for them to be allowed to jump.  Thankfully they were all able to rebook and over the next couple of weeks all 6 of them have completed their Skydive.










Summer also let us have a copy of her video, so if you’ve ever fancied taking part in a Skydive here’s what to expect.


Thanks to the Miles4Mel Cycling & Skydiving Teams they have raised a fantastic £42,000 this year, with funds still coming in.
