Daredevil Dawson

Is it a bird…?
Is it a plane…..?

No it’s our very own daredevil Katie D…

She is jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet, although she is strapped to a man (I think Katie secretly hopes he is very, very hunky).

You might think she is completely bonkers, well she is, but aside from that the jump is for a charity that is very close to Katie’s heart and in memory of her friend Matt.

She is helping raise money for an ECG machine in memory of Matt who suddenly passed away in 2006 at the age of 25 from Sudden Adult death syndrome.

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome is the adult version of Infant Cot Death, there is no warning, no cure and no real explanation as to why this happens to seemingly healthy people.

With the use of ECG tests and Echo screenings most cardiac abnormalities can be diagnosed, patients helped and research collaborated.

They are working hard at raising funds. Hopefully Katie’s contribution will put them even closer to their target and also help make sure, less families and friends have to suffer losing someone.

During office hours Katie D is our marketing consultant, often thinking up of new and fantastic ideas to help our clients have that market edge. Dedicated, always ready for the next challenge and a general little star there is no wonder she is happy to risk life and limb for a good cause.

Katie D will be jumping on Saturday 22nd August at 3pm, at Hibaldstow Airfield near Brigg. Please feel free to come down and watch her jump. It should be a great afternoon out.
