Staff at deals publisher Icelolly are aiming to raise £1,500 this month for charity by completing a sky dive and a London-to-Paris bike ride.

On Saturday (September 14), a team of Icelolly employees led by sales director Stuart Barrett will be joined by family and friends for a sponsored sky dive in Bridlington, Yorkshire.

A week later, a team led by Icelolly’s chief executive Richard Singer and finance director Neil Beardsmore will aim to complete a 156-mile trip from London to Paris in less than 24 hours.

Funds will be raised for Yorkshire-based charity Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF), which works alongside the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit at Leeds Children’s Hospital to support babies, children and adults with congenital heart defects.

Sharon Addy, Icelolly’s compliance and customer experience manager, said: “We have supported Children’s Heart Surgery Fund for many years, but the team are going the extra mile this September to raise money for this amazing charity.

“The fund offers invaluable assistance to patients who are undergoing major surgery and the support they provide to them and their families is hugely valuable and appreciated. We are genuinely proud to support such a worthy cause.”

Icelolly has set a minimum fundraising target of £1,500.
