Mentor staff 'leap at opportunity to boost fundraising effort'

17 June 2013

Four fearless females from Mentor Training took part in a sponsored skydive to celebrate their company’s 25 years in business as a workplace transport and mobile plant training provider

On Sunday 9 June, the fundraisers, from Mentor offices across the UK, jumped from over 13,000ft. After a 5,000ft freefall – during which they reached speeds of up to 120 mph – the team opened their chutes and were safely reunited on the ground.

Norma Gartland, from Mentor’s Livingston office, said: “Waiting to jump was really nerve-wracking, but the thought of all the money we had raised for good causes kept us focussed.”

The jump took place as part of Mentor's ‘Mission 25’ initiative, celebrating their quarter century by raising £25,000 for charity. As well as undertaking a series of sponsored challenges – including head-shaving and a Land's End to John O’Groats forklift drive, the company will also be donating 50p for every training day sold between April 2013 and March 2014.

At the end of the 12 month challenge, proceeds will be split equally between five charities; Help for Heroes, Prostate Cancer UK, Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, Children's Hospice Association Scotland and Children in Need will each benefit from the initiative.
