Daredevil jumpers parachute for Primrose



 Six members of the Thomas family; Ben, Ceri, Ellie, Joanne, Sheryl and Tilly, joined by Alex Allcott and and Ann Gameson, all bravely took the plunge to raise funds for Primrose Hospice. Between them, the skydivers raised an incredible total of £6,970. The family owned funeral directors, Thomas Brothers from Redditch, decided to take up the challenge of the sponsored 10,000 feet freefall parachute jump harnessed to a professional instructor, freefalling at a speed of 120 mph. The Challenge event took place at Redlands airfield near Swindon, all with the aim of raising much needed funds for Primrose Hospice.

“The whole experience was a thrill none of us will ever forget. We would definitely recommend parachuting for Primrose to anyone with a sense of adventure,” said Alex Allcott of Thomas Brothers.

“We are extremely grateful for all funds raised to help the work of the hospice. We were really excited that the group of adventurous skydivers from Thomas Brothers took up this thrilling challenge. All the services of the hospice are provided free to people at a time in their lives when they need it most and without the support of people taking up challenges like this and raising vital funds, the hospice would not be able to carry out its crucial work,” Anne Snell, Corporate and Community Fundraiser.

The next opportunities to take part in a parachute for Primrose jump are 16 June and 22 September.
