One Giant Leap for Alzheimers SocietyMember News
With Direct Airs 25th anniversary in 2018, we thought it was about time we selected a company charity.
A cause which is very close to the company is the growing battle against dementia, therefore for 2018 we will be raising money in support of Alzheimers Society.
And in honour of our anniversary, we have set ourselves the goal to raise £25,000 for such a fantastic cause!
Our first big challenge will be... skydiving!
On August 5th, 10 of Direct Airs bravest employees will be jumping out of a plane for Alzheimers Society for the One Giant Leap!
