11km tandem skydive for Cash for Kids


Quill’s charity events of 2023 are a triple treat with each activity designed to raise as much money as possible for our charity of the year, Cash for Kids.

On the theme of ‘falling’, we’re kicking things off with round one which is an 11-km tandem skydive on 7th September. Employees were invited to apply for one of only five places, with the lucky (and plucky!) winners being Lyndsay Hall (Cashier), Samantha McCarthy (Cashier), Abigail Morton (Cashier), Emma Scott (Cashier) and Eddie Smith (Finance Director).

We’ve set ourselves an ambitious target of £6,000 so Cash for Kids can help more children and young people achieve their potential and live life to the full. When you consider the challenges faced – poverty, abuse, neglect and life-limiting illness amongst them – disadvantaged families have never been in such urgent need of support.

To get behind our brave skydiving team, please donate what you can on our fundraising pages. Simply select the area closest to you and pledge your funds. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
