Our Very Own Flying Man!
On Sunday 25 September 2016, our very own Romiley Branch Operations Manager completed a charity skydive in aid of a local Tameside charity ‘Tameside4Good’, being a local lad himself Tom Arrundale wanted to give something back to the community as he was willing to complete a 1,000ft free-fall, travelling at 120mph. He managed to raise more than £500 for the charity with help from Benchmark. Job well done Tom!
To all interested there will be another opportunity to complete a skydive on Sunday 5th March 2017.
Amy Rowlands for the Tameside4Good had this to say - “I’d just like to say thanks to Benchmark Building Supplies for supporting Tom Arrundale to take on the Tameside 4 Good skydive. He raised a fantastic amount. Every penny donated to Tameside 4 Good funds activities for disadvantaged young people, aged 5 - 25, and Tameside community group projects that alleviate poverty, improve health, and develop skills, education and employment.”
