Six employees at Ipswich-based Concertus Design & Property Consultants have completed a skydive to raise £2,798 for local charities.
It was their first dive and Commercial Director, Matthew Self was joined by Beth Wade, Kamil Kalembkiewicz, Sophie Lissauer, Sophia Nicklin and Steven Ryles, who all jumped under the pseudonym ‘Splat Self and his Self-Destructors’.
Concertus’ chosen charities for 2018, Selig Suffolk and Nick Fayers Amend Fund, will now benefit from every penny they raised in sponsorship.
The group were joined on the day by their colleague Paul Smith, a seasoned skydiver who filmed everyone as evidence that they took on the challenge.
Matthew commented on the dive: “I was very nervous beforehand and daunted by the prospect of jumping out of a plane at 11,000 feet. However, we all supported each other, and the experience was absolutely brilliant; made even more worthwhile because it was all for a good cause.”
