Staff from Pure Resourcing Solutions in Norwich raise over �1,100 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices

Four colleagues from Norwich recruitment specialists Pure Resourcing Solutions have raised over �1,100 through a sponsored skydive.

The team of recruitment consultants from the company's Tombland office each completed a tandem sky dive, in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

April Gotts, Angie Atkinson, Graham Moss and Tina Maguire took to the skies with the help of UK Parachuting in Beccles.

Ms Atkinson said: 'It didn't feel at all like I expected. You are falling fast, but feel like you are floating, although it's hard to breathe before the parachute opens.

'It was strange seeing colleagues in the air at the same time but we all loved it.'

The team chose to do the sky dive to help meet Pure Resourcing Solutions' 10-year anniversary charity challenge. The company has supported EACH, as well as J's Hospice and other charities, since the business was established in 2002.

More than �40,000 has been raised for the charities to date, and it aims to increase this total to �50,000 by its anniversary in September.
