A Team of eleven employees from Airspace East Kilbride, have pledged to raise thousands of pounds for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) by taking part in a jump of a different kind! On Sunday 26th March they’ll be following their motto of ‘living life adventurously’ by swapping trampolines for bungee cords as they jump 132ft from the bridge at the Pass of Killiecrankie in Perthshire.
The Airspace team got involved with the specialist charity when they heard that over 700 people are affected by the lifelong, complex disabilities of spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus in Lanarkshire alone and that the funds they raise would directly go towards the support of these families.
Chris Rome, Marketing Manager for Airspace EK said, “Our ethos at Airspace is that everyone has ‘space to fly’ and we’ll certainly get that on this exhilarating challenge. The 50 mile per hour jump will be worth it if we can raise lots of money for SBH Scotland.
He continues, “We’ve got counter boxes in our café and at reception and we’re very grateful to everyone who’s donated so far. This charity receive little statutory funding and rely on fundraising to continue vital work in our own community so it’s important to us that we raise as much as we possibly can.”
SBH Scotland offer a lifetime commitment of support and information to all those in Scotland affected by the spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. Established in 1965, the charity now supports over 3,500 children, young people, adults, their family members and carers every year in Scotland.
Lynsey Hamilton, SBH Scotland Fundraiser says, “The bungee jump at the Pass of Killiecrankie is going to be a fantastic event with over 50 people jumping for SBH Scotland. We’re very excited that Airspace East Kilbride are getting involved, their support will make a direct difference to the lives of children that we work with.”
