6 Staff from Groupama Healthcare in Letchworth are getting ready for a tandem sky-dive on 29th April to raise money for Dogs for the Disabled. The charity is close to the heart of Michelle Lamptey, a Team Leader at the company whose brother Jake Gear, 16, suffers from Friedrich’s Ataxia, a rare disorder that affects the nervous system, and is confined to a wheelchair. Jake’s life has been transformed by ‘Nudge’ his 2 year old specially-trained dog who helps him carry out day-to-day tasks.
Helen Parnell, Kirsty Brown, Chris Church, Stephen Flint, Geraldine O’Neill and Carl Read work with Michelle and have all agreed to do a sponsored sky-dive on 29th April at Old Buckingham Airfield, Attleborough, Norfolk. Groupama Healthcare is making a donation towards the initiative and other staff at the office in Broadway, Letchworth will be sponsoring the sky-dive as well as organising other fundraising events. Money raised will be used to train dogs like ‘Nudge’ to support disabled people.
People wishing to sponsor the team should contact Michelle Lamptey by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
