Estate agents working for Paramount Properties in West Hampstead are hoping to raise £10,000 for charity by participating in sponsored skydives this weekend.
12 members of staff will visit the North London Skydiving Centre on Sunday 17th June to jump out of a plane at 13,000 feet. Lettings Director Spencer Lawrence organised the jump so the business could raise money for worthy causes, and has found that group fundraising efforts and a joint fear of heights has brought the team closer together.
"I approach this weekend with trepidation as I suffer from a fear of heights, but I hope this fear coupled with the notion of jumping out of a plane will be enough to secure donations for this very worthy cause."
Estate agent Oliver Lewis adds: "Homelessness is a huge problem, and I want to raise as much money as possible to ensure those that are homeless get all the necessary essentials that we should all have in life."
Oliver's colleague Danielle Davey is skydiving because of her shock over Christmas at the number of homeless people in London: "It is unbelievable that people are stuck outside in the winter months with no food, warmth or shelter. The charities we support will help people in these circumstances have a better quality of life."
If you have waited many years to see estate agents jump out of a plane, your donation would be gratefully received online via JustGiving:
