Ever felt like throwing your estate agent out of an airplane? Well now you can! You have the chance to ensure that four local estate agents hurl themselves from 15000 feet up in the air .. and all in the name of a local based charity!


Four Exeter-based estate agents from Knight Frank, Jackson-Stops & Staff and Winkworth are quite literally throwing caution to the winds by skydiving in aid of St Loyes Foundation.


Chris Clifford and Amber Lange from Knight Frank, Emma Solman from Jackson-Stops & Staff and Simon Scott-Nelson from Winkworth will be jumping out of a plane at 15,000 ft above Dunkeswell Airfield near Honiton in June. Each team member will be jumping with an experienced instructor and will freefall for 10,000 ft before the parachute opens to bring them back to earth safely.


St Loyes Foundations Community Fundraiser Phil Roberts said: We are delighted that Amber, Emma, Chris & Simon are supporting us in our 75th year. The money they raise will make a huge difference to the lives of people currently facing life challenges, including those with disabilities and health conditions. People like Tom, who at the age of just 22 had his immediate future taken out of his hands when he suffered a stroke. With our help, Tom is now back at work & enjoying life to the full again.


To gain satisfaction from throwing an estate agent out of a plane, and support a superb local cause at the same time visit www.justgiving.com and enter the agents name that you wish to sponsor to make them quite literally fly.


Simply text 70070 with the code below and your donation. For example JUMP 75 10. Everyone can see who has donated to the charity on their Just Giving Pages.


Chris Clifford (Knight Frank) - CCSD 82


Amber Lange (Knight Frank) LLSS 73


Simon Scott-Nelson (Winkworth) - JUMP 75


Emma Solman (Jackson Stops and Staff) - EMMA 62


St Loyes Foundation are organizing the 75th Anniversary jump on 22nd June and there is still time to sign up if you want to join the property team doing their fantastic bit for charity. Skydive UK organizes the jumps with their highly experienced tandem instructors and full details are available on the St Loyes website.


Chris Clifford at Knight Frank says, None of us have ever skydived before and to be honest, its a pretty terrifying thought. However, the thought of raising funds for such an amazing charity as St Loyes will have to sustain us through the experience. And no doubt well get a wonderful birds-eye view of some of the houses we are marketing on the way down!


Simon Scott-Nelson, at Winkworth says St Loyes is a wonderful local charity providing terrific opportunities for people in life and Winkworth are extremely proud to support it.
