Adrenaline for 9’s fundraisers25.10.2019
Thirteen members of 9’s team took to the skies to raise money for charity in their most recent adventure.
For those who aren’t thrill seekers, the idea can seem daunting. But that didn’t stop them! After one attempt was called off due to the weather, the event took place. You can watch Tom’s video here:
We spoke to a few members of the team who told us how the experience was for them!
“The skydive was a great experience, the views were breath-taking seeing only blue skies. I tackled the clouds and glided down into landing, having the feeling of great achievement. Firstly, because I completed the jump and secondly because I’m still alive to tell the tale.” – Tyra
“I was nervous beforehand as I’m petrified of heights. When we got in the plane it became more real, but sitting on the edge of the plane with my legs underneath just felt terrifying. Then we fell and it was amazing! The view on top of the clouds and the speed we were going was insane.” – Tom
“In the words of my 9-year-old; “Daddy’s instructor (Glen) did well to manage daddy as an excited little boy”. It is truly amazing to drop out of an aircraft and see the world from a bird’s eye view. Everyone should do this.” – Paul
“It was such a great experience and adrenaline rush, I just want to do it all over again! Also, such a great way to raise money for charity and to do something with colleagues that I will never forget.” – Kelly
