For Cameron to achieve this and have the opportunity to prove himself against some of the country's best electrical apprentices is a great honor for Cameron.

Sky Dive for the British Heart Foundation

16.04.19

One of our Fire & Security engineers is raising money for the British Heart Foundation's research and would be so grateful for your support with his partner. The BHF is a charity very close to their heart and any donation big or small would mean the world to them. They are doing a 10,000 feet skydive in memory of his beloved Grandad, Derek. Their aim is to raise money to aid research in the hope of preventing people dying from heart disease and prevent families losing loved ones like his family have. The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK, but sadly, every day, hundreds of people still lose their lives. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help them hit their target.
