Andrea and Mandy jump high for Red Balloon!
High flyers from Yell, Andrea Seward - Customer Service Manager, and Mandy Withers - Senior Customer Services Executive, took fundraising to the extreme recently by doing a tandem skydive - jumping 10,000 feet - which saw them raise almost £2,000 for Red Balloon Reading, Yell's corporate charity.
The daredevil duo initially hoped to raise at least £1,000 between them, but wound up smashing their target by notching up a grand total of £1,950. Andrea and Mandy will visit Red Balloon Reading in October to see how the learner centre will be putting their donation to good use in helping the recovery of bullied children.
Yell people have been fundraising for Red Balloon Reading since 2010. In that time they have raised more than £15,000, which has funded the recent refurbishment of the learner centre and will contribute towards the centre's ongoing running costs.
