Featured Fundraiser: Charmaine Jacobs


This week, our featured fundraiser is Charmaine Jacobs, who completed a 12,000ft Tandem Skydive last Friday.

The dive was in support of Rushey Green Time Bank, who Charmaine works for. The charity aims to empower local residents to improve their own health and sense of well-being.

Charmaine is just a few pounds away from her £1,000 target, and has raised over £250 offline as well. We hope she had an unforgettable day and that she reaches and exceeds her target.


Fundraiser update


Just over five weeks until Christmas and while most of us are worrying about our Christmas shopping, some tenacious fundraisers are more concerned with raising more money for their charities.

Kiefer Shea-Godden is taking on a challenge for BBC Children In Need Appeal and will perform a sky dive on Saturday 21st November.

On Sunday 22nd November, Graham Clarke from Middlesbrough will be doing a 170ft bungee jump from the Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough in aid of The Child Care Action Trust. He says he knows the stunt sounds crazy, but the Trust’s ‘Step Together’ local centres do excellent work for children with cerebral palsy and dsypraxia and he would like to help raise money for them.

Colleagues from the firm Pro Doncaster will spend the 24th November in Doncaster jail where they will not be allowed to leave until they have each raised £500. Andy McKenna, Daniel Fell, Liz Dickson, Paul Goel and Kelvin Fitton have agreed to be arrested and incarcerated in aid of the charity AHS Foundation. Andy McKenna had so far raised £600 – we would like to know if this means he gets a Get Out Of Jail Free card!
