Staff at an Irvine aircraft company are set to dive out of a plane for charity.
Five brave staff members at Irvine’s Vector Aircraft Services are parachuting in the summer for kids charity, Children Today.
Organiser Fiona Rooney, 31, from Prestwick is not nervous about taking the plunge.
“People have made jokes that our job involves maintaining aircraft and we’re going to be jumping out of a plane, but none of us are nervous. You always hear people say that it’s one of the best things in the world and it’s all for a good cause.”
Fiona will complete the jump sometime in June 2013 with colleagues Chris Spencer, Lisa Lawson, Stephen McCartney and Mandy Blythe.
The group are hoping to raise over £2,250 for Children Today, a charity that helps disabled children and young people up to the age of 25 enjoy a better quality of life by providing them with specialised equipment they need.
The group have managed to raise 17 per cent of the cash already. For more information on Children Today, head over to: www.childrentoday.org.uk. To donate to the group’s cause, visit their donation page: www.justgiving.com/teams/VectorAircraftServices.
