67488-d-ferA TEAM of 21 members of staff from the Yorkshire-based dealership, JCT600, have taken part in a 10,000ft skydive for charity.

Staff from the Apperley Bridge head office, contracts department and two family members completed the challenge to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation.

They took to the skies at Grindale airfield near Bridlington with the aim of raising £10,000 for the charity, but managed to reach an impressive £14,000.

Chief executive of JCT600, John Tordoff, was one of those who took part.

He told the Ilkley Gazette: ‘I was really impressed that so many of our head office team were willing to overcome their fears to support our chosen charity.

‘While each sky diver was attached to an experienced tandem parachute instructor, it was still pretty terrifying to leap from a plane at 10,000ft, before freefalling at around 120mph to 5,000ft when the canopy opened. I loved it!’
