PARACHUTE FOR PRIMROSE
Well done to NICK GODFREY / TOM GWINNETT / SARAH HARROD / MARK SMITH / MATT TONGUE / JIMMY TONKS.
On Friday 28th September 2018, six of our very own brave employees raised a huge amount of money for the Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove by Parachuting for Primrose.
After the first jump was cancelled on Saturday 22.9.18 due to poor weather conditions, we all arrived back at Hinton Airfield on Friday 28th September 2018 at the allotted time of 9am.
It was a beautifully sunny day and, although nervous, they all had the experience of their lives by free-falling from 13,000 feet in blue skies.
They all landed perfectly and were buzzing to do it again!
Well done to each and every one of you, you have all raised money for a great cause and the Hospice will benefit greatly from all of your sponsorship donations.
DUE TO POOR WEATHER ON SATURDAY 22ND SEPTEMBER – THE PARACHUTE JUMP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO FRIDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER. LETS HOPE FOR BETTER WEATHER THIS TIME AROUND!!
On Saturday 22nd September the Barrie Beard Brave Six were all geared up to go, but unfortunately when poor weather conditions at 13,000 feet put a damper on proceedings the jump it had to be re-scheduled. The agreed new date is Friday 28th September 2018.
Not long to go now until our Super Six brave Barrie Beard staff will roar out of an aeroplane in the hope of raising lots of money for The Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove. Good Luck to you all and we’ll see you back safely on dry land.
There’s still time to sponsor them!!
