NACC charity skydive raises more than £6,000

A group of five members of the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) have raised more than £6,000 after completing a skydive in aid of the Food Chain and Alzheimer's Society.

Despite a fear of heights, NACC national chair Neel Radia leapt 10,000 ft from an aeroplane in a tandem skydive, which included a 45-second freefall.

They were joined by Sophie Murray, deputy chair of the NACC; Preston Walker, director/owner, Oak House Residential Home and Billie Moore, managing director/owner, McCullough Moore.

Radia said: "The NACC skydive was an incredible experience and quite indescribable. We're so proud to have raised such a great sum for the Food Chain and Alzheimer's Society, whose work, like that of the NACC's, is dedicated to improving the life quality of the vulnerable and elderly.

"I can't lie, the skydive is one of the most nerve-wracking things I've ever done, but it was worth it and I'm glad to have completed it alongside good NACC friends and colleagues.

He added: "Despite all our fears, we were determined and driven to make the jump by the amazing support of colleagues, NACC members, families and friends. We would like to thank everyone for their enormous encouragement and generous donations."
