Quintessentially Foundation’s Skydive

On 13th July 27 brave souls from Quintessentially London threw themselves out of a plane from 14,000ft (that’s 2.5 miles high) in a charity Skydive for Quintessentially Foundation.  Luckily we all returned – Rob Break’s bacon sandwich however, didn’t make it.

Our jump took place at Netheravon, near Salisbury on a sunny but cloudy day. The whole thing lasted about 6mins for each person with 45-50 seconds of free-fall followed by a five minute gentle parachute back down to green earth.

The event has collected £22,492GBP so far in sponsorship money and we are still raising so please donate now! For information on how to donate please speak to Chloe Musgrave (chloe.musgrave@quintesentiallyfoundation.org), Cordu N’Diaye (cordu.ndiaye@quintessentially.com) or see our Facebook page (http://goo.gl/ToINM).

The money we raise from this event is being be put towards the Quintessentially Foundation small grant scheme. All event participants/ fundraisers will be able to nominate a charity of their choice to receive small grants of £500-£2000

These are our best/ and worst bits in pictures, videos and quotes.  Please see Quintessentially Foundations facebook page (http://goo.gl/ToINM) for more!
