Kraig Seymour’s charity sky dive.

Father of two completes charity challenges

Published:  20 October, 2016

Kraig Seymour, yard sales manager of the Weybridge Champion Timber branch, has completed two jaw-dropping charity challenges in aid of children’s charity Shooting Star Chase.

Firstly, Mr Seymour braved a 100-metre abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. His next challenge was a hair-raising 10,000ft sky dive at the GOSkydive centre in Salisbury.

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

Commenting on his achievements, Mr Seymour said: “The sky dive was the craziest thing I’ve ever done. I was really excited to begin with but this soon turned to nerves as the plane went higher and 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 I am keeping my Just Giving page open a little longer – please give whatever you can for this important charity!”
