On 27th May, a member of the Commercial Property team at Warner Goodman will be facing their fear as they skydive for local charity, Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association.

Jenny Colvin, based in the firm’s Portsmouth team, will be taking part in the charity’s 10,000 foot skydive.  “A skydive has always been on my bucket list but I’ve been a bit more cautious since having my daughter,” explains Jenny.  “When this opportunity came up however, it seemed a perfect chance to tick this off the list, while also helping a charity that is so close to our hearts here at Warner Goodman.”

Portsmouth DSA is a self-funding charity giving support to families and schools across Hampshire, ranging from education services, information days and a variety of social events, all provided in a warm and welcoming environment.  As well as participation in the skydive, Warner Goodman have supported the charity in a number of ways, raising almost £10,000 in the last few years.   This has included a team entering the Great South Run, an abseil down Spinnaker Tower, and an annual Facebook campaign to raise vital awareness as well as funds.

“I’m hoping to raise £500 for the charity, and if I exceed that amount before the skydive I will be jumping in fancy dress!” concludes Jenny. “I’ve reached half of the target, and we had a dress down day across the firm on Friday 5th May, from which my colleagues very generously helped raise a further £91 towards my target.  I think someone may have to push me out of the plane on the day, but I’m certainly looking forward to it and hope to do my friends, family and the charity proud.”
