Jumping out of planes and horse racing… in aid of St Nicholas Hospice

 UPDATE – 27 September 2016

All of the skydives have now taken place and we can confirm that £3901 has been raised for St Nicholas Hospice. Well done to all of those that took part and thank you to everyone that has donated and shown their support.

Original news item dated 21 June 2016 follows below.

Ensors staff are keen fundraisers and this time they are going all out… out of a plane door that is!

Fourteen of Ensors staff members will be taking part in a sky-dive to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice; a facility that provides extensive physical and emotional support to those in the final chapter of their lives and their loved ones. 

The first batch of brave staff members jump this Sunday 26 June at Beccles Airfield.  Partner Paul Williams will be accompanied by managers Jonathan Wingfield and Katie Varney and students Dale Bartholomew, Sharna Eldred and Deborah Botting.

The second sky-dive takes place on 4 September and will see Director Chris Barrett, Senior Accountants Holly Gibson and Natasha Thickitt and students Mark Trussell, Matt Lis, Lucy Hayden, Jess Anderson and Kirstie Bates take the leap. 

In support of our daring colleagues, members of the Saxmundham team put on a Race night at Framlingham Conservative Club on Friday 17 June. The night raised £1,200 and saw staff members, fellow professionals, sponsors, friends and family join forces for an enjoyable night of fundraising. There were around 60 people in attendance throughout the evening to witness and place bets on the eight races.  

The team would like to thank everyone that came along, bought raffle tickets, supplied prizes and all of the race sponsors: Tropic Skincare, Ensors Accountants, Mint Fitness Limited, Hatcher Components Limited, RM Phoenix Limited, Clarke & Simpson, TCG Services Carpentry and Construction and Paul ‘Sam’ Mayhew Joiner and Carpenter.
