As part of the Stonegate Pub Company’s charity challenge 2014 – ‘Britain’s Biggest Pub Tour’ – two very brave members of staff from their Head Office took on the challenge of a lifetime to participate in a world record skydive on Saturday 14th June at Hinton Airfield.

Vanessa Newins and Laura Brookes both pushed through their fear barrier and after jumping from a height of just under 13,000 ft landed safely to comment:

“It is safe to say our nerves were pushed to the limit, it was possibly the scariest few minutes of our lives, neither of us are sure if we enjoyed the experience or not, and we definitely don’t plan to do another one anytime soon!

All that aside, between us we raised almost £2,500 for Variety, the Children’s Charity and we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their generous donations and messages of support”
