It makes us incredibly proud when members of the Fuel Card Services team give their time and effort to support great causes, and this was precisely the case for our very own Mark Flippence in recent weeks.
On Sunday (June 30th), Mark took a leap of faith by taking part in a charity skydive in support of Mind – The Mental Health Charity.
Helping raise funds and awareness
Before the jump, Mark explained: “I always wanted to do a skydive and if I can raise money for a fantastic charity at the same time, then why not?
“This is for a great cause and will help a lot of people with the money that is raised.”
In total, he helped to raise almost £1,000 for this fantastic cause and, after the jump, he described the experience as being “a really good day” with “perfect weather for it”.
Mind offers information and advice to thousands of people up and down the country in regards to their mental health.
Indeed, with approximately one in four of us suffering from a mental health condition at some point in our lifetime, this is a charitable cause that has the potential to support millions of people in their time of need.
Once Mark safely returned to the ground, he commented, “I enjoyed every moment of it and it was for such a great cause. Raised a lot of money in the process. Massive thank you to everyone for their donations and support on the day. If it wasn’t for those people, and the great charity I was doing it for, I would never even got on the plane.”
If you’d still like to make a donation in support of this great cause, Mark’s JustGiving page remains open and all donations are extremely welcome!
