Calor staff take the plunge for Alzheimer's Society

STAFF from Calor were jumping for joy after raising £10,000 for charity.

The Warwick-based team raised one pound for every foot they fell in a skydive and were joined by colleagues from Calor’s Stoney Stanton depot.

The money was raised for the Alzheimer’s Society which is the company’s corporate charity. Calor have now raised over £100,000 for the charity in two years.

Organiser Shaun Williams said: “Nearly everyone at Calor knows someone who has been impacted by the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease and the team wanted to do something that would make a real difference, by raising as much money as we could to boost the company’s main charity fund.




“To help us achieve our target, we held a number of events, including cake sales, car washes, raffles, collections at local supermarkets and even a charity leg wax and every penny raised will help support the vital work of the charity.

“We’re all really proud of our achievement. Some of us even decided to jump from 15,000 feet, which took a lot of courage, but to know that we were going to be raising so much money in the process made the experience all the more exhilarating.”
