DRL skydive for charity

We were so lucky with the weather, it was a fantastic day and everyone enjoyed themselves. It is a testament to the dedication of DRL staff that no one backed out on the day, and we had to organise a second jump as so many people wanted to take part!

Some brave souls from online kitchen appliances company, DRL Limited, are raising money for Bolton Lads and Girls Club through a number of skydives taking place in Grange over Sands in the Lake District.

15 employees jumped from 14,000 feet on Saturday, with more due to jump on Saturday 29th May.

Head of People and Development, Adam Morgan, took part in the daunting jump and commented, “We were so lucky with the weather, it was a fantastic day and everyone enjoyed themselves. It is a testament to the dedication of DRL staff that no one backed out on the day, and we had to organise a second jump as so many people wanted to take part!”
