An adventure from 15,000 feet

A trio of financial experts from Grosvenor Consultancy will be pushing their nerves to the limit with a scary, hair-raising and crazy challenge, jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet, all in the name of charity.

To help raise funds for the Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), Adam Holmes, Alan Oakley and Edward Whiting have decided that March is the month when they will get their pulses racing and push their limits to the extreme with this adrenaline-fuelled activity. At 9am on 23rd March the trio will be at Dunkerswell Airfield in Honiton where they will experience the most ultimate of thrills!

Adam Holmes comments: “When I heard about the opportunity to raise a little money for a fantastic charity and fulfil a lifetime ambition of jumping out of a plane, I knew I had to take the plunge. To be accompanied by 2 colleagues is certainly a massive help, we can share the trauma together. There is certainly some trepidation and a little fear, and no doubt a couple of sleepless nights are on their way. However, it is all worth it in the knowledge that we are raising some money for CHSW.

As a team we know we are about to embark on the most amazing and traumatic challenge we could ever face, but at least we are not having to run 26.3 miles!”
