Our Director of Website Design & Development, Miles Thorp, raised Â£350 for children’s charity NSPCC by taking part in a sponsored skydive.
On the 1st October, Miles joined a number of extreme adventurers across the country to take part in a freefall from over 10,000 feet in a tandem skydive. After a full day’s training and safely strapped into an instructor, Miles’ freefall reached speeds of 120mph before touching down in Nottingham.
The aim of the skydive was to raise money and awareness for children’s charity NSPCC, who fight to end child abuse across the UK. They believe every child deserves a happy childhood, and work tirelessly to try and stop abuse.
“Not only was this a great opportunity to raise money for a worthwhile cause, it was also a great challenge.” Said Miles, “My biggest fear is heights, so it was a big step to overcome this fear!
All donations go straight to the NSPCC, and will help them achieve amazing things for children across the country. As little as Â£5 could help buy art supplies for a child who has been abused to help express their feelings, or Â£25 could pay for one hour of support for a child with a trained NSPCC practitioner.
