Family Freight Company Staff to Free Fall for Hospice

Intrepid Trio to Parachute for Charity
Shipping News Feature
UK – Three daring members of staff from South Link Logistics will be taking part in a tandem sky dive on Saturday 8th July to raise money for St Barnabas House, a hospice charity that provides specialist palliative care services to adults with advanced progressive life-limiting illnesses, both within the hospice and in the comfort of patients’ own homes across West Sussex.

Associate Director Rob Sutherland, Jade Reidy from South Link Customer Relations and Leann Cole of the company’s Operations Department will be leaping out of a plane at 10,000ft at Salisbury Airfield. They will fall through the clouds at 120mph before the parachutes open to bring them safely back down to the ground. Rob Sutherland commented:

“St Barnabas House does fantastic work in the local community. Some of our team and their families have been directly supported by the hospice so we wanted to do something challenging to thank them. South Link has covered the cost of us doing the sky dive so 100% of the money raised will go the charity. We’re aiming to raise £2,000 and would like to thank all our friends, family and customers who have donated already, we’re extremely grateful.”
