Webhelp Daredevil Dives for Charity

A brave Kilmarnock woman has skydived her way to an impressive £3,612 for local charity Ayrshire Hospice.

A business trainer at Webhelp in Kilmarnock, Kirsten Stewart, was keen to raise money for the local hospice after seeing first-hand the good work they do.

Kirsten said: “I chose to do a Skydive as this is something that I believe to be a bit out of the ordinary and felt it would help me in my aim was to raise as much money for the charity as possible,  as well as raising awareness of the amazing work they do.

“The build up for the jump was so exciting I was hyper for weeks, but when the door of the plane opened my heart sank. By this point I was 10,000ft in the air and there was no going back. We were falling at about 120mph and when we finally landed back on safe ground I felt so overwhelmed that I had actually done it and for a charity close to my heart.”

Anton Manley, chief operating officer at Webhelp UK, said: “Congratulations to Kirsten for such an impressive effort. She has raised a huge amount of money for a very worthy cause and we are extremely proud of her. At Webhelp we are very conscious of the role we play in the communities in which we are based and it makes me very proud when I hear stories of our people going out of their way to give back to those communities.”

The event took place on May 27, 2017, at Errol airfield in Perthshire and meant an early start and an anxious wait to see if the weather would be kind enough to let the jump go ahead. Kirsten then topped off the day of fundraising with an evening of raffles, auctions and games at Townholm Bowling Club.
