Sheffield broker falls from the sky in support of Weston Park Cancer Hospital

25th September 2012

A team of six staff from IFM Insurance Brokers based on Tapton House Road has completed a tandem Sky Dive to raise money for local Weston Park Cancer Hospital.

The IFM Weston Park Challenge took place on 29 August involving the Parachute Regiment Freefall team who fell with six team members from IFM.  The IFM team included Anne Lomax, Vicky Linley, Kirsty White, Andrew Biggs, Katie Biggs and Ben Wild.  The IFM team skydived at Langar Airfield in Nottinghamshire. The Sky Dive is the first of many events, which IFM will be doing to raise a target of £10,000 for its chosen charity, the Weston Park Cancer Hospital. Managing Director David Biggs recently completed a 3km fun run raising £500 whilst other members of IFM will be undertaking a 4.5 km night walk and the Great North Run on 16 September. David Biggs, Managing Director of IFM Insurance Brokers said, Despite some bad weather conditions which caused the original jump to be cancelled our team successfully completed their mission despite a nine hour wait on the day waiting for the weather to clear.  We're really proud to be supporting Weston Park Cancer Hospital and the sky dive is a great event to kick off our support.  The hospital does some really fantastic work making a huge difference to many people's lives.
