Today’s Group MD completes 15,000 feet charity skydive

On the 30th July 2016 Today’s Group Managing Director, John Schofield and his partner Dawn, successfully completed a 15,000 feet skydive, raising nearly £6,000 in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The terrifying tandem jump took place in Hibaldstow, Lincoln, which is home to the highest skydiving base in the UK.

John explained his motivation for completing the brave challenge, saying, ‘so many lives are touched by this dreadful disease, we wanted to help in some small way and decided on a sponsored skydive.’ Speaking after the event, John continued, ‘I can’t believe I used to be scared of heights but can recommend the experience to any of you who feel the urge.’

Nearly £6,000 has been raised so far thanks to the generosity from Today’s wholesale members and it’s supplier partners, along with friends and family of John and Dawn.
