We're always finding new ways to support our charity, CLIC Sargent, and this year we are going above and beyond (literally!). On December 9th 2017, 9 brave TORI-ans will be skydiving in Cambridgeshire, England.... dressed as Santa Claus. The Santa Skydive is a nationwide challenge where hundreds of people will be jumping out of planes at the same time in red suits and a white beard, all in the name of charity. Jump locations span the whole of the UK across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Katie Lawton, Wiktoria Bartusik, Caz Robbins, Paul Lowrie, Shaun Sloan, Angad Sidhu, Rowan Duke, Dominic Yacoubian and Anvar Turobov are the 9 jumpers who will jingle all the way down from 10,000ft in a freefall tandem skydive. This is a truly thrilling challenge and not for the faint-hearted. Not to mention the freezing temperatures that December can bring! Luckily the Father Christmas costumes will act as a second layer of warmth over the jumpsuits!
TORI Global has been supporting CLIC Sargent for over a year now and we have raised nearly £50,000. We want to double this by September 2018 and fundraising activities like the Santa Skydive will help us get there. You can read more about our partnership here.
When cancer strikes young lives CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage it causes beyond their health. Today 11 more children and young people will hear the devastating news they have cancer and we are raising funds so that CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams can continue to be there to provide help and support.
We have a group target of £4,000 to raise and if you would like to support us in our Santa Skydive, please visit the team's Just Giving page here.
