As one of Jackie O’Quinn’s, Mayor of Brighton and Hove, chosen charities this year we were given the opportunity to take part in an adrenaline fueled fundraiser – the i360 Drop. Two of our brave staff members from Whitehawk After School Project (Impact WASP), Charlotte and Lily, travelled up on the Brighton i360 pod to 138 metres high.
They were up there admiring the breathtaking view of Brighton and Hove, and across the sea with the Mayor’s three other charities: RISE, RSPCA Brighton and Together Co. It was great to see Together Co’s Ambassadors Gail Porter, who actually took part in the Drop herself, and Marc the Vet. Charlotte and Lily were 138 metres up for over an hour being the last two in the pod to descend using the harness and safety line system.
We want to give a very big thank you to RSPCA Brighton for hosting such a fun and worthwhile event. And also to our staff members who managed to raise a whopping £1,000 for Impact Initiatives. This money will be allocated to the service they work in, Whitehawk After School Project.
