Two staff from the Sheffield office of Investec Wealth & Investment reached new heights while raising funds for the South Yorkshire Heart Appeal.

Senior investment director Nick Bolton and financial planning administrator Elizabeth Coggan joined a sponsored skydive from 15,000ft at the Hibaldstow airfield in Lincolnshire, raising around £1,200.

It was Elizabeth’s idea and colleague Nick volunteered to join her despite his fear of heights.

Nick said: “I was pretty nervous before we jumped and the initial freefall felt a bit like being on a rollercoaster, but the instructor who jumped with me was very reassuring. After the parachute went up I began to really enjoy it – it was an incredible adrenaline rush.”

Elizabeth said: “Although it was something I had always wanted to do my nerves were playing up a bit in the plane, but when I got out there I really, really loved it.

“It has been a fantastic experience and I am grateful for all the support we have had from the company and individual colleagues who supported us with sponsorship.”
