REHAU is once again thanking all the customers, colleagues and suppliers who supported its ‘Redkites’ charity skydive in 2015, because it has just been named in the top 1% of fundraisers for last year on the www.justgiving.com website.
The skydive generated more than £5000 for the Prostate Cancer charity and, rather appropriately, this put REHAU in the top 5000 of the 500,000+ people who raised money via a Just Giving fundraising page in 2015.
REHAU’s group of nine Redkites completed a series of tandem skydives from the maximum height allowed for civilians without oxygen in August 2015. They received fantastic support from across the industry with notable donations coming from customers Climatec Windows, Iceni Windows and Solar Windows, industry colleagues PHAM News and Reliance Worldwide Corporation, and suppliers Dialogue PR, Earl & Thompson Marketing, Switch, Windowbase and Wyatt.
REHAU’s Marketing and Technical Director Gareth Jones, who jumped alongside colleagues from REHAU’s windows, underfloor heating and cable management divisions, said: “As it turned out, jumping from a plane at 15,000 feet was the easy part and all of us really enjoyed the experience. The real thanks must go to our customers, colleagues and suppliers who gave us their backing and helped us make such a fantastic donation to the Prostate Cancer charity.”
