Staff at leading leisure airline Jet2.com have raised almost £4,000 or Hope for Children through a team Sky Dive. Jet 2, a leading leisure airline who have flown over 30 million customers to more than 50 destinations, have been supporting the international children’s charity for 8 years by fundraising through sales of in-flight scratch cards and monthly “dress down” collections, which raise over £500 per month.

Stacey O’Connor, Route Revenue Analyst at Jet 2.com and Skydiving team leader said “what started as a small group of 5-6 quickly grew to a team of 18, who worked amazingly hard to ensure we achieved our minimum target in support of Hope for Children.  Our team’s bravery shone through on the day and all the hard work paid off with some participants facing their fears, some fulfilling a dream and others vowing never to skydive again.  All in all, it was a very successful event and this wouldn’t have been possible without such a dedicated and courageous team of superstars who, in true Jet2.com fashion, went the extra mile.”

Murielle Maupoint, Hope for Children’s Chief Executive was delighted with the efforts of the Jet 2 team. “Jet 2 has backed Hope for Children over a number of years and we’re so grateful for both the efforts of their team and the generosity of the company to allow staff to spend their time fundraising for Hope for Children.”
