Hallidays’ Leap of Faith for Beacon Counselling
On Monday 18th August 6 brave Hallidays team members completed a terrifying 11,000ft skydive to raise money for their charity of the year, Beacon Counselling.
Anna Bennett, Director; Nichola Coles, Client Manager; Nicola Jackson, Payroll Manager; Simon Leitch-Devlin, Accounts and Audit Technician; Nick Holton, Accounts Trainee; and Merryn O’Keefe, Accounts Trainee all took part in the skydive, together raising over £500 for the charity.
“The whole day at the Black Knights Parachute Centre near Lancaster was amazing,” Nicola Jackson, Payroll Manager, revealed.
“The weather was perfect and the skydive was absolutely awesome. It was an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone brave enough to try it!”
Nichola Coles, Client Manager at Hallidays commented: “In the light of the devastating news of Robin Williams’ death, I’m proud that we are helping a charity which tries to step in to help people with depression and other mental health issues.”
