Charity challenges completed

Kraig Seymour, Yard Sales Manager of the new Weybridge Champion Timber branch took on 10,000 foot to raise money for children’s charity Shooting Star Chase.

Seymour, 28 from Mitcham in Surrey, has now completed two jaw-dropping charity challenges in aid of the Surrey-based hospice charity. Firstly, he braved a 100 metre abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.

Kraig’s next challenge was a hair-raising 10,000-foot sky dive at the GOSkydive centre in Salisbury, in October!

Being a father to two, Seymour chose to fundraise for Shooting Star Chase – a leading children’s hospice charity that cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

He has nearly hit his £1,000 target for the charity and can still be sponsored in-branch and online at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Kraig-Seymour2

Seymour said: “The sky dive was the craziest thing I think I’ve ever done. I was really excited to begin with but this soon turned to nerves as the plane went higher.  I’m so pleased that my partner and children could come to watch and support me – it meant I had to put a brave face on regardless. I’m determined to hit my £1,000 target so am keeping my Just Giving page open a little longer – please give whatever you can for this important charity.”
