Staff from law firm Cripps braved nerves and the elements to take to the skies and parachute 12,000ft to earth to raise money for charity.


Victoria Rowing, Marisa Lambkin, Natasha Holme and Kathryn Gurr took part in a tandem skydive at Headcorn Aerodrome, raising in excess of  £2,000 for Rethink Mental Health. 


“None of us had done a skydive before, so the rollercoaster of emotions we felt through the whole experience was intense; from nauseating nerves, to adrenalin-fuelled excitement and the intense relief that you made it back to ground,” said Kathryn Gurr, who co-organised the event.


“We know that people who struggle with their mental health experience their own rollercoaster of emotions every day, which is why we are so incredibly proud to have raised more than £2,000 for such a worthy cause”.


Rethink Mental Illness directly supports thousands of people every year to get through crises and live independently.  For more information, and to donate, click here:
