Insurance man in charity dive

Have your say

A BRAVE insurance man swapped a suit and tie for goggles and parachute as he took part in a fundraising stunt.

James Brannen, from the Sheffield office of NFU Mutual, did a tandem skydive to raise cash for the Make a Wish Foundation UK.

Mr Brannen was representing South Yorkshire in a team of 14 employees from across the UK at Hinton Airfield in Oxfordshire, who jumped from around two miles up in the sky. He hopes to raise £325 in sponsorship.

Mr Brannen said: “Given that it is all aid of such a good cause, and with some degree of coercion from colleagues, I agreed that it was something that I should tick off the proverbial list of life experiences.”
