Harrison Spinks take to the sky for industry charity


Three daring employees from Leeds bed manufacturer Harrison Spinks have raised £1,400 for us by completing a tandem skydive.

Richard Essery, managing director at Spinks Springs; Darren Marcangelo, commercial director at Spinks Springs; and Chris Townsley, components production manager at Harrison Spinks, bravely took to the sky on Saturday 5 May and jumped from 15,000ft at Skydive Hibaldstow, Lincolnshire.

Darren Marcangelo, commercial director, said: “Harrison Spinks recently became a corporate member of The Furniture Makers’ Company because of the shared values we have towards supporting the furnishing industry. This is a great charity doing very good work to help others and provide much needed support to people in need.”

Hayden Davies, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “I would like to congratulate Richard, Darren and Chris for completing their skydives and thank them for doing it in aid of us. Supporter-led fundraising events such as this are great for raising funds for the charity and creating awareness of what The Furniture Makers’ Company does amongst employees.”
