Thrill seekers take to the skies to raise funds for Age UK Solihull

Solihull Editorial 18th Jul, 2017   0

A HIGH-FLYING team took to the skies in a bid to raise much-needed funds for Age UK Solihull.

The six-strong team from the Legal and General Home Finance team in Solihull took to the skies recently and raised £6,000 for local older people.

Deb Butler, Michelle Davenport, Harriet Moon, Anastasia Pantelli, Tina Robinson and Janine Worthington all took part in Tandem Parachute Jumps for a cause close to their hearts.

Lorraine Hart, Fundraising Manager at Age UK Solihull, said, “We are so grateful to the team at Legal and General Home Finance for putting themselves up for this challenge.

“Having done a tandem jump myself in March, I know how much guts it takes to make the leap.

“The amount the ladies have raised is fantastic and will really help us in our aim to support as many older people in the Solihull borough as possible, with the challenges faced in later life.”
