Steven Hunt skydivers round off a year of charity challenges
It was the latest in a series of events and activities undertaken by the team in 2019 which have raised a total of £7,758 raised for North West Cancer Research
Staff at Liverpool-based mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy, Steven Hunt & Associates completed a an adrenaline-fuelled skydive to mark the company’s 30th anniversary.
It was the latest in a series of events and activities undertaken by the team in 2019 which have raised a total of £7,758 raised for North West Cancer Research.
Six Steven Hunt thrill-seekers took part in the 11,000 ft skydive and other challenges during the year included gruelling 300-mile office spinathon and the Three Peaks Challenge.
Assisted by the Black Knights Parachute Centre in Lancaster, the skydive team included managing director Steve Hunt and his 76-year-old mother-in-law, Irene Webster, who was more than happy to go above and beyond for the charitable cause.
Steve said: “At the start of the year we set out three challenges that would stretch the team to the limit, each representing the three decades that we have been a business.
“I want to personally thank each and every one of them for getting stuck in and demonstrating real team spirit, making 2019 one of the most memorable years in the company’s history.”
Irene added: “I must admit that at the age of 76 I never thought I would be jumping out of a plane 11,000 ft up, but as soon as Steve asked me if I was interested, I leapt at the chance, not only to raise money for such an important cause, but to celebrate the company’s 30th milestone.”
Launched in 1989, Steven Hunt & Associates has gone on to become one of the leading M&E firm in the North West and are currently the only BIM level certified M&E consultancy in the region.
Cara Newton, head of fundraising for North West Cancer Research, said: “We can’t say thank you enough to the team at Steven Hunt & Associates for choosing us as their chosen charity for its landmark 30th anniversary year.”
