Officially announced at the Garden Press Event (Feb 27th) it has been confirmed that three brave souls will be taking to the skies on June 2nd in aid of the Greenfinger Charity. However, this will be no ordinary flight!
Each of the Greenfingers supporters will be strapped to the roof of a bi-plane for a 10-minute exhilarating wing walking experience. Featuring fly-pasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks, the participants will see the Wiltshire countryside from a bird’s eye point of view. The wind forces – caused by speeds of up to 100mph – will also help add much hilarity to the in-flight photography!
Taking part in this amazing challenge will be Mark Portman, MD of Evergreen Garden Care, Vicky Nuttall, Director of GIMA, and Lowri Walker, National Account Manager at SBM Life Science. A fourth spot is currently available for anyone with a wish to feel the wind in their hair.
As 2019 represents the Greenfingers Charity’s 20th anniversary, the brave wing walkers have vowed to collectively raise an astonishing £20,000 before they take to the skies later this summer. Anyone wanting to donate can do so by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/gima-wing-walkers
Talking about this latest challenge in aid of Greenfingers, the charity’s Director of Fundraising & Communications, Linda Petrons said: “What an amazing way to support Greenfingers! I’ve no doubt this will be a day to remember for all those involved. I’d like to extend my thanks to those brave enough to take on this challenge, and thank you for your tireless fundraising efforts – £20,000 for 20 years is a truly touching tribute.”
