LESW Charity Skydive Challenge 2011

Posted by admin on September 19, 2011

The LESW Charity Skydive Challenge, now in its 2nd year, is shaping up to be another great Corporate Social Responsibility event supporting our local community.


LESW have pulled together 9 brave volunteers to take the daring 10,000 ft tandem skydive on behalf of 3 great charities here in Cornwall on Wednesday 21st September 2011. All volunteers are employees from the local business community and their individual profiles can been seen on the dedicated challenge webpage.


The Team hope to raise around £3000 for our chosen charities and this year sees Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF) being selected. CCF and LESW have further chosen to distribute a large proportion to help two specific projects; the Cornwall Befriending Scheme, which supports young carers who care for parents with long term illnesses or disabilities, and Carefree Fostering Independence Cornwall which is a voluntary organisation helping young people in care to provide them with vital support and a range of activities.


On the day a spectator area with light entertainment and catering facilities will be available so family, friends, colleagues and anyone who is keen to support can see the brave team in action, along with the chance to meet the charities and the great people behind them!


Please do take the time to visit the LESW Charity Skydive Challenge 2011 website for more information, to meet the team and if you’re feeling generous to make a donation.


Thank you
