Flying high for charity
Four Petersfield Partners felt the wind in their faces and the rush of adrenaline when they completed a sponsored tandem parachute jump in aid of Cancer Research.
ASM Grocery Geoff Purkiss, ASM Grocery Nick Poke, FVH Assistant Owen Roberts and Grocery Assistant Tom Oatley completed the 12,000 ft jump at Hinton Airfield near Banbury, raising £1,300.
Geoff said: “None of us had done a jump before, and there were mixed emotions of excitement and nervousness. It felt very strange actually jumping out of the plane door, all your senses say you shouldn’t be doing this”.
“We all agreed it was the most brilliant experience of our loves and we would all love to do it again”.
