Staff at an electrical engineering firm based in Witchford raised more than £1,000 for a children’s charity by taking part in a skydive.

Five team members from Stormport Professional Services, based on the Lancaster Way Business Park, raised £1,065 after taking part in a tandem sky-dive to raise funds their chosen charity, the Child Brain Injury Trust.

The event took place at the North London Sky-Diving Centre at Chatteris Airfield, near March, on June 7.

Steve Wright, managing director of Stormport, said: “We are delighted to have raised so much money for this very worthy charity, beating our £1,000 target.

“Every half an hour in the UK, a child or young person will acquire a brain injury. The Child Brain Injury Trust provides information, support and training to anyone affected by this devastating and life changing condition.”

Stormport will be taking part in another sky-dive later on this year for the other staff volunteers eager to throw themselves out of a plane.
