UHY skydivers raise thousands for Dreams Come True
UHY dare-devils sky-dive in aide of Dreams.
On 4 March 2017, some of our staff across the UK took part in a charity skydive raising £4,500 for our national charity, Dreams Come True.
Dreams Come True is a national UK charity that works hard to make dreams come true for children and young people aged between two and 21 years old with serious and life-limiting conditions.
Eight of our staff took part in total, with a further three planning to jump next month, including staff from our London, Manchester, Kent and Brighton offices. Jumps took place from sites in Lancaster and Maidstone.
Our 27 offices have been working with Dreams Come True for the last year, and have raised over £23,300 in total so far.
We also have six staff members taking part in the London Marathon next month, to raise funds for Dreams Come True.
Stephen Grayson, partner in our Manchester office and one of our brave skydivers, says: “Dreams Come True is dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people and we are very pleased to have raised over £23,000 so far to help them with their work.”
“There are still contributions rolling in following our skydive and three of our team will be jumping next month, so please do get involved in what is a great cause.”
Subarna Banerjee, chairman of our charity and not-for-profit group, says: “This is the latest fundraising event of our calendar and perhaps the most hair raising so far.”
“Everyone has been part of our campaign to raise money for Dreams Come True. We’ve made a good start but there is still plenty more we can do.”
