FOUR employees from Stoke Prior-based Armstrong Bell will undertake a daring skydive to raise cash for Primrose Hospice, writes Thomas Giles.
Vicki Stiles, Katie, Ollie and Declan, will be jumping from a height of 10,000ft and could reach speeds of 120mph in their hair-raising attempt on September 14 to raise £2,500 for the hospice, which provides help to people with life-limiting illnesses.
A recent visit to the hospice in St Godwalds Road inspired the group to take up the challenge.
Vicki said: “This will be the biggest challenge of my life so far, but the cause is much greater than the fear.
“I’m so passionate about Primrose Hospice, it’s an amazing charity.”
Ollie added the Primrose Hospice did some amazing work for the local community, which the four were lucky enough to see when they paid the charity a visit.
Primrose Hospice fund-raiser Anna Wilson said she was delighted.
“It is wonderful to have support from the amazing team at Armstrong Bell.
“We are always looking at ways in which we can work with local businesses to support the work of the hospice,” she added.
