Alison Morrissey and her son Ryan completed the Sky Dive in aid of AGE UK Suffolk, at Beccles Airfield, with the UK Parachuting team.

Alison and her son Ryan Pitcher from Euroswift Logistics completed the jump on Sunday June 4 raising £1,500 for AGE UK Suffolk which the ACT Foundation, which runs Basepoint business centres, will match fund so making a superb total of £3,000 for the charity.

Alison said: “The experience was terrifying and amazing at the same time and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. The amount that Ryan and I raised between us made it all worthwhile, the licensees at Basepoint were so supportive and gave generously.”

Alison’s oldest son Matthew Claxton from 3PL logistics also jumped on the same day for Mental Health Awareness raising just over £1,000 with the help of four work colleagues who joined in and jumped as well.
