One of our intrepid insurance specialists is set to take to the skies all in the name of charity.

Vicky who is an account executive at Bayliss & Cooke, has signed up for a sky dive challenge to raise funds for Katharine House Hospice.

“I’m so excited to be able to raise funds for the hospice in Stafford because they do fabulous work in our community,” she said.

“A lot of my colleagues at Bayliss & Cooke have had personal experiences of the hospice and the support it provides – the staff are wonderful and the breadth of services they offer is outstanding.”

Vicky’s challenge will take place on Saturday, June 18, at Langar Airfield, near Nottingham, when Vicky will jump from an altitude of 10,000ft.

“I know that many of my colleagues from The Henshalls Group and some of our clients will be on the ground to offer support, and I’m really looking forward to the experience.”

The #skydivechallenge2022 initiative has been organised by Katharine House Hospice who aim to help patients with life limiting conditions – and those close to them – to live life as fully as possible and to make the most of the time that they have.

The care the team provides is free where and when it is needed most: at the hospice, in the community and at home.

Vicky said: “Thanks to generous donations, I’m already over half way towards my £1,000 target, and I’m incredibly grateful for all the support I’ve received so far.”
