AICR Staff Skydive

Many of our supporters have raised money over the years taking part in weird and wacky fundraising events. Suzanne and Claire, 2 new members of staff here at AICR were inspired by the success stories and decided that they wanted to organise a fundraising event for the charity too.  Not to be left out, 4 other members of staff decided to join in and take part in a tandem freefall skydive to raise money for AICR.  

They raised an amazing £6,658.69!

You can still make a donation in support of the brave staff that took part in this event here.

The support generated for the AICR staff members has been outstanding. We would like to thank everyone for their kind words and generous donations.

Jordi Pitarch Marquino who took part in the Marathon des Sables 2008 for AICR sent this message of support.

Just a quick message to congratulate you and the rest at AICR for your impresive 10,000 feet sky dive. I hope it was as smooth as it could possibly be to do something like that - never mind desert marathons comparing to that!

We would like to thank Costa Coffee in St Andrews for letting the AICR staff members hold a fundraising event there. Thanks to everyone who came along and showed their support. The grand total of £219.87 was raised!
