The TORI team were inspired to support the charity as its specialist CLIC Sargent Nurses supported Ben, the son of Nigel Crutchley, an employee of the firm, throughout his treatment for a brain tumour.
Sadly Ben died in 2012 aged just nine-years-old. Nigel and his family set up the ‘Benny Boy Crutchley’ fund in his memory, and have pledged to raise £1 million for CLIC Sargent. Now, the funds raised by TORI Global are set to take the family closer to their goal.
TORI Global is a transformation consultancy for the Financial Services with offices in London, New York and Stockholm. This fundraising partnership started in July 2016 and since then has raised £40k with staff taking on a range of fundraising activities from scaling the Three Peaks and pedalling through a static bike challenge to organising successful golf and race days. The team are hoping to raise in excess of £4,000 from the skydive.
The jump, taking place on 9th of December, will be on the same day as hundreds of other people taking to their sleighs and descending from the clouds around the UK, making it a very festive day for Skyline the skydive provider.
TORI Global's Chief Operating Officer, Rowan Duke, said “We are always looking for new ways to support CLIC Sargent and I thought a team skydive was such a fun idea. I was amazed at how quickly the team were keen to get involved and the enthusiasm and support from the company as a whole has been great. We hope to smash our target and raise as much money for the charity so close to our hearts
Emma Macdonald, Sports & Challenge Events Manager at CLIC Sargent, said:
“When cancer strikes young lives we fight tirelessly to limit the damage it causes beyond their health. We rely entirely on donations to fund our vital work and so we can’t thank Rowan and everyone at TORI Global enough for their fantastic efforts.”
