High-flyers take a dive for charity

Chucking your staff out of an aeroplane over Northampton may not seem to be the wisest idea ever, but 15 employees from Inferno leapt into thin air with the agency’s full blessing earlier this month.

The gang took part in a parachute jump in aid of the through-the-line agency’s nominated charity the Rainbow Trust. The fearless 15, exited the plane at 17,000 feet to demonstrate, among other things, their commitment to the children’s charity, which Inferno has been supporting for three years.

The agency’s support for the Rainbow Trust is one of the elements of its “Love What Could Be” programme.

Now safely back down on earth, staff are gearing up for a charity auction, where one of the lots offers another chance to taste the high life (and probably a long boozy lunch) by swapping jobs with a board director for the day.
