CDL Take a Dive!

Sales may be rising but events took a distinct dive at our Sunderland Office recently.

In our continued charity fund-raising efforts, MD Darrel Birkett and Regional Sales Manager Chris Oldroyd undertook a tandem skydive and raised £855 for The Newcastle Chronicle’s Sunshine Fund, which provides specialised equipment to children with disabilities in the North East of England.

Commenting on the dive Darrel, pictured bottom with a trainer from the Peterlee Parachute Centre explained, “We flew up to around 12,000ft, jumped out and accelerated to 120mph.  Straight down!  It was exhilarating! the first 6,000ft which is over in just under a minute was breathtaking and would certainly recommended it!  The next six thousand feet under canopy is more relaxing as you chat and come gently back down to earth.
