Taking to the skies raised hundreds of pounds for a children’s charity when a member of staff from Ridgeons in March braved a sky dive.
Natalie Tuerena, 33, from the sales team at Ridgeons, skydived from 13,000ft and raised £1,350 for the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice.
EACH is the Ridgeons chosen charity of the year.
Natalie said: “I’ve always wanted to do a skydive so took the plunge. it was out of this world.
The initial dive from the plane and free fall at 120mph was simply incredible. I’m already planning to sign up to do another one!”
