A group of our students completed a tandem skydive this summer to raise money for charity, including for our Malawi project.

Seb Exall, Aaron Blackman, Harry Rodway, Saul Packer, and Cassia Taylor jumped 13,000 feet to raise money for their trip to Malawi next year. Fellow student and friend Kishen Patel jumped with the team to raise money for a charity in honour of his late grandfather.

The money raised will go toward’s the team’s visit to Chipwepwete School in Malawi next summer, where they will run lessons at the school, take part in building projects, and work with the local communities there.

The team are also planning how they may make a special contribution to the Hope4Malawi project, which will be developed when they fly to the country in July 2020.

Sara Goodman, founder of charity Hope4Malawi, said: “That’s phenomenal! Well done everybody. And thank you to all your family and friends for their generosity. That will make a huge impact at Chipwepwete and so exciting that you will all be visiting next summer.” 

Having smashed their original target of £2,020, the team have raised just over £5,000 (including gift aid) – and there’s still time to donate!
