Employees at the Norwich and Ipswich Depots of the UK’s premium express delivery Company have raised £1,450 for children with life-threatening illnesses after braving the skies in a 10,000ft skydive.
The money raised by the team at City Link, on Broadlands Business Park, will go to the Make A Wish Foundation® which every year arranges to fulfil the wishes of hundreds of children fighting life-threatening illnesses. It is City Link’s adopted charity for which the Company has pledged to raise £40,000 over 12 months.
Nick Long, General Manager of the Norwich Depot, teamed up with Nat McDowell, Operations Manager at the Company’s Ipswich Depot, to complete the skydive in aid of Make-A-Wish, raising £1,450 with the help of family, friends and colleagues.
Nick said: "We decided to do something for Make-A-Wish following a City Link conference where we were all asked for our help in raising funds.
"We decided we really wanted to do something and that’s when we came up with the idea of the skydive.
"We’re delighted with how much we raised and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported us and helped us raise a fantastic sum for such a worthwhile cause."
