Staff help raise over £15,000 for Shooting Star Chase.

On Saturday 19th September, brave volunteers from Townends Estate Agents, part of Badger Holdings Limited, took part in the ultimate challenge, a tandem skydive with GoSkydive, the UK’s premier tandem skydive specialist, to help raise vital funds for Shooting Star Chase.

After an hour’s briefing and being fully kitted out, members of staff jumped from an altitude of 10,000ft at the GoSkydive centre in Salisbury, Wiltshire. A few people even decided to pay an extra fee to really face their fears and go from 15,000ft. Reaching speeds of up to 125mph, and with a freefall of approximately 30 – 60 seconds, everyone took on a real challenge and helped to raise a fantastic sum of money, over £15,000, for a very worthy cause.

Tony Addinall, Chairman of Badger Holdings Limited, was one of the participants taking part. He comments: “We couldn’t have picked a better day to jump if we had tried. The weather was beautiful, clear blue skies, which meant the experience was even better as we could see everything. The view from 15,000ft is one I will never forget. The whole day was incredible and I know everyone would do it all again tomorrow if they had the chance.”

Badger Holdings Limited has supported Shooting Star Chase, a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, for the past 15 years. Staff throughout Badger Holdings Limited, parent company to Townends Estate Agents, Regents Estate Agents, dot financial services, Tyser Greenwood Surveyors and INEX Property Solutions, regularly give up their own time to participate in a wide range of fundraising events such as cycle rides, walks and marathons, to raise much-needed funds for this excellent cause.
