Codie and Colin’s leap of faith for our charity
Codie Walton and Colin Pringle, Service Leaders for Community Integrated Care’s services in Gateshead, took a giant leap of faith earlier this month as they zip-wired from the dizzying heights of the Tyne bridge to raise money for our charity.
The funds that the daring duo raise will go towards specialist equipment, sensory tools and facilitating aspirational opportunities for the people they support in the North East.
Codie said, “The experience was amazing, although daunting! I felt really proud to face my nerves and raise money for our charity, as I know the funds will make a real difference to the people we support. Colin and I are now more determined than ever to keep fundraising for our services, and we’re even looking into doing a tandem skydive.”
Colin added, “Whilst it was scary, it was an honour to jump for the charity and having the people we support and the difference we could make at the forefront of my mind, whilst dangling off the Tyne Bridge, really helped. Bring on the next challenge.”
Marc Brodie, Community Integrated Care’s Managing Director for the North East, said, “We are extremely proud and grateful to Codie and Colin for taking on such a nerve-wracking feat to raise awareness and funds for our charity. At Community Integrated Care, everything that we do has the people we support at heart; we’re really passionate about ensuring that everyone lives fantastic lives and receives the best support possible. The money that Codie and Colin have raised will make a huge difference to the people we support across the North East, going towards equipment and opportunities that will have a really positive impact.”
