Sansum Solutions staff get ready for charity skydive in aid of children's hospice

Sansum Solutions Group Limited, a commercial cleaning contractor in the heart of Somerset, will see three of its management team skydive from 15,000 ft on September 25 in aid of the Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW). 

Jason Woodcock, Managing Director, Jennifer Wilson, Business Development Manager and Rachel Porter, HR Manager of Sansum, have all volunteered to brace themselves and prepare for the 120 mph freefall, lasting up to a minute before their parachutes open, in Dunkeswell Honiton.

Mr Woodcock said: “We have chosen Children’s Hospice South West as one of our local charities to support this year, recognising the crucial service and support that they provide to children, their siblings and families”. 

The hospice is celebrating its 30th anniversary year and have three dedicated hospices situated at Charlton Farm, Somerset, Little Bridge House, in Devon and Little Harbour, in Cornwall.  Each hospice provides children with life limiting conditions and their whole family respite, short breaks, emergency care and palliative care, including end of life care and bereavement support.

Sansum’s skydive is just one of many fundraising events the staff will be engaging in this year, hoping to raise as many donations as possible in support of the ongoing work of the charity.

So far, Sansum has raised 50% of its £1,500 target.  Donations in support of the charity skydive can be made following the link:  Sansum Solutions is fundraising for Children’s Hospice South West (
