WHEN Cambridgeshire based business woman and driving school owner Sue Papworth made the decision to support Magpas, little did her pupils know she’d be encouraging them to jump out of a plane - and she’s inviting local companies to do the same!

Sue says she’d like to give something back to her local community, “I wanted to support a charity with direct links to my own goals and aims of reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries in my region. Magpas Helimedix save lives by the road side, in the home or wherever the emergency call out takes them in the East of England”.

Sue is organising a sponsored Sky Dive at UK Parachuting (Sibson) near Peterborough on the weekend of 25th and 26th June. She’s looking for other businesses to join her, by jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane in an effort to help Magpas - The Emergency Medical Charity, so it can continue to do essential lifesaving work in Cambridgeshire and beyond. So far, to name a few, Jacqui Kemp from wellbeing company Cerentas and Kathryn Fletcher from Business for Breakfast Cambridgeshire have signed up.. Will you?

If you have the bottle to do a sky dive with Sue, or you’d be prepared to support and sponsor her sky dive, please contact her on (07703) 355 722 or at Or you can contact Antonia Brickell at Magpas on (01480) 371 056 for more details.
