Sky’s the limit at Prestige

Octpknews69PrestigeStaff and friends of park home manufacturer Prestige Park & Leisure Homes bravely took to the skies this summer, sky jumping to raise funds for Cancer Research.  

Co-ordinated by staff member Samantha Whitehead who was inspired to jump after two close family members were affected by cancer, the team of eight dare devils jumped from Hinton Skydiving Centre in Northamptonshire sponsored by generous friends, customers and colleagues.

John Romans, of John Romans Park Homes generously sponsored the team before their dive to the tune of £1000 - £125 each as an expression of support and thanks after the successful launch of the Grand Symphony at Stoneleigh, now at Pinehurst Park Near Bournemouth.  He said, ‘The team at Prestige are very talented and hardworking and I know that includes those working quietly behind the scenes. They came up trumps with the Grand Symphony and I was particularly pleased with the result – it’s stunning.  I wanted to do something meaningful for them in return to say thank you and this charity sky dive gave me the perfect opportunity to do that.’

Speaking about the jump Sam Whitehead said. ‘A part of me had always wanted to do a sky dive and it was simply the most amazing experience.  Cancer touches the lives of so many people that we all thought it was a cause everyone would identify with.  Working for a company like Prestige we knew there was a wider team supporting us all the way to help us raise as much money as possible, and we’re really grateful for that.’

Donations are still welcome online at www.justgiving.com/PrestigeHomesSkydive until November 4th.
