Team OGL prepares for their highest challenge yet

A team of 12 adventurous OGL staff have decided to take part in a skydive on Saturday 28 March to help raise £4,800 for Dementia UK.

With just over two weeks to go until they jump out of a plane with a piece of nylon strapped to their back, Team OGL are gearing up for the challenge of a lifetime.

Ryan Knowles, who is a member of the Finance Team, is one of the twelve brave members of staff who will be making the jump. We caught up with Ryan to find out how he's dealing with the nerves before the big day.

"At the moment I'm quite excited", Ryan unconvincingly claimed, "although I'm sure I'll be a nervous wreck on the day. I've never jumped out of a plane before, and I'm not great with heights."

Also jumping on the 28th is Receptionist, Sam, who extended her thanks to everyone who has sponsored the team so far:

"I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has already donated! Please continue to support Team OGL, and keep the sponsors coming in. No matter how small or large, any donation for Dementia UK will be very much appreciated."

Total online donations for the skydive currently stand at £1,190; this figure rises to a fantastic £1,850 once offline donations are added. However, the team still need your help to reach their £4,800 target, so if you feel able to sponsor them then please use the link below to do so.
