NACC members to take part in charity skydive

A group of six members of the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) will take part in a charity skydive to raise money for the Food Chain and Alzheimer's Society.

Members will leap 10,000ft from an aeroplane, including a 45 second freefall, as part of their ongoing commitment to making a positive difference to the lives of the vulnerable and elderly.

They will be joined by Amanda Scott, managing director UK, Sunrise Senior Living; Preston Walker, director/owner, Oak House Residential Home; Billie Moore, managing director/owner, McCullough Moore and Sophie Murray, head of nutrition and hydration, Sunrise Senior Living

Radia said: "I have always wanted to do a skydive and to be able to fulfil this ambition in support of two wonderful charities is fantastic.

"I'm naturally nervous but it's going to be a great experience to jump out of a plane alongside good NACC friends and colleagues."

He added: "It's also a thrilling way to kick off the NACC's 30th anniversary year. Improving the life quality of the vulnerable and elderly through good nutritional and emotional care is the aim of the NACC.

"The Food Chain and Alzheimer's Society share our mission to enrich lives and we are proud to be able to support them in their formidable work. I ask industry colleagues to please sponsor our charity skydive as generously as possible, and thank them wholeheartedly for their support."

The tandem skydives will take place on Saturday 8 October following the NACC's Training and Development Forum which will be held from 5-7 October in Nottingham.

Both charities will also be collected for during the NACC Awards dinner.

The team is calling on the support of industry colleagues to ensure they raise as much money as possible. To make a donation visit
