Society Staff Members Prepare for Fundraising Sky Dive

10 June 2015

WAA Fundraising

Three brave members of staff from the Society will be taking to the sky for a sky-dive on July 11th to help raise funds for Wales Air Ambulance, our Charity of the Year 2015.

Shauna Cook, Chelsea Jenkins and Samantha Clarke, who all work at our Newport City Centre Head Office, decided to undertake the sky-dive with the hope of raising over £1,000 for Wales Air Ambulance after they were announced as our Charity of the Year and recipients of £10,000 for an events trailer via the Society’s Lasting Legacies programme.

Wales Air Ambulance is an all Wales charity providing emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injuries. It is their mission to aid the relief of sickness and injury, and the protection of human life, by the provision of an air ambulance service across Wales.

Wales Air Ambulance provide a 24-hour air ambulance operation, and continually strive for an outstanding air ambulance service available to everyone in Wales.

Shauna said: “I’m really proud of our small team for taking on the challenge of a sky-dive. This is the first time for the three of us so we’re all pretty nervous, but the thought of raising a good sum of money is keeping us going.”

She continued: “We all feel honoured to be able to raise funds for the lifesaving Welsh charity who are only able to carry out their important work thanks to fundraising such as this, and we’re overwhelmed by the generous donations received so far.”
