Reach for the sky: Barclays colleagues support Cancer Research with a tanden sky dive
FOUR intrepid members of staff at Barclays Bank in Wisbech took to the sky to raise money for Cancer Research UK, completing their first even tandem sky dive.
The colleagues all jumped from a plane at the North London Parachute Centre at Chatteris airfield, and their bravery has already raised more than �3,000 for the charity.
“We decided to raise money for Cancer Research, because my mother Elaine Wagner from Newton was diagnosed with breast cancer last year,” said the bank’s business development manager David Norris. “She is now on the mend, thank God. We all wanted to repay something of the good work done by Cancer Research, and I know my mother is very proud of us.”
Making the jump alongside David were branch manager Natalie Endersby, and cashiers Carol Rushmer and Jessica Wallace.
David said: “I really enjoyed the sky dive, it was such a rush, I would definitely recommend it. I really hope to do another sky dive for the charity before the end of the year.
