THE sky's the limit for a daredevil team from Russell Taylor Group who will be taking part in a skydive for charity later this month.

Aaron Errington, Ashley Grey, David Ainslie, Scott Murphy, Laura Williams, Victoria Hull, Brendon Hogan, Nicola Oleron, Ged Baty and Mike Kinealy will all be free-falling above the Leicestershire countryside on Saturday, September 19 to raise money for Alder Hey Children's Hospital, the company's nominated charity.

Russell Taylor's fundraising target is £10,000 to pay for a state-of-the-art bedroom at the Liverpool hospital which cares for more than 270,000 children, young people and their families every year.

The skydive with Black Knights Parachute in Leicester is the latest in a number of innovative fundraisers by the company which hopes to reach its target figure by the end of the year.

Russell Taylor Group chairman Peter Russell said: “This is probably the most daring of all the charity challenges our staff have been involved in.

“It really shows their commitment to our company ethos of charity initiatives in the local community and I am delighted that so many people have volunteered to face this daring task.”

Russell Taylor Group has set up a JustGiving page for anyone who wants to support the skydive team in its fundraising for Alder Hey. To donate, please go to
