Charity Skydive - April 13th 2019!

These 4 super brave PwC colleagues are taking on a Skydive to raise funds for one of our two office chosen charities; The Christie on April 13th 2019. The minimum fundraising target individually is £400 so we really need your support as we would all love to completely smash our  targets! And hey - if you can't decide who to sponsor - sponsor them all? All the funds go to the same great cause and please make sure to tick the gift aid box if you are a UK resident!





Want to know more about the Skydivers and why they're taking the leap? Course you do!

Jacob Maitland is an SA2 working in the Centre of Excellence based in Manchester working on all things pensions and share based compensation - you've either worked with him on an audit or taken part in 2018's #BAGSOFHOPE campaign. After being on the bucket list for years he finally gets to throw himself out of a plane and to do it for a great cause in supporting this amazing charity.  

Steph Balint is a Course Executive in the Talent & Development team supporting the Tax Training Programmes for the business. Steph is also a 1st time Skydiver and aside from being absolutely petrified is hoping to raise donations for such a wonderful charity so close to her heart and so many others!

Danielle O'Shea is a Virtual assistant based in Manchester. She supports 7 Directors who all work in Deals.  This is her first time doing a Skydive and probably her last! It won't be raindrops you feel that day, but tears falling from her face. However on the other hand, she is very excited to be taking part in this extreme sport alongside 3 of her colleagues. She has not had to raise sponsorship money since she was a small girl, going door to door on her street, with her form in hand! How times have changed! So if anyone can help us to raise some money for this extremely worthwhile cause it will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

Jackie Waller is a Virtual Assistant based from home 4 days a week and in the Manchester office 1 day a week.  Jacks supports 5 BRS Directors all based in More London and an Immigration Lawyer based in Embankment Place. She has never done a Skydive before and aside from when she is trying to drum up donations, is trying to completely forget it is even happening! She imagines you will hear her screaming on the way down from your own homes...that's worth a sponsor surely? She might even break the sound barrier? Who knows! All fun aside this is a charity super close to Jackie's heart as a close friend was diagnosed with leukaemia last year and were it not for the Christie and their amazing support and treatment, she may not be here today.   

Huge thanks for all the support so far guys!

Jacob, Steph, Danielle & Jacks
