Mike drops into the fundraising zone for a special cause
9 August 2022
Our very own Mike Douglas flew into action to fundraise for a very special cause, raising £1870 for Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham.
CAPTION: Mike Douglas, Account Exec at Hazelton Mountford, finally made his fundraising skydive on 6th August 2022 in memory of Henry Dog Bromberg.
After a false start, due to adverse weather, Mike set about his dive from the sky earlier this month in order to raise money for a much loved charity.
The monies will go to Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham which provided Henry’s parents Laura and Robert private accommodation adjacent to Birmingham Children’s Hospital while Henry was in their care.
Mike remembers that Henry Dog Bromberg: “was one of the most special little boys I have ever known… Henry was passionate about helping other people and was an ambassador for many charities. In his 9 years he achieved wondrous things and always imparted the people he met with such a zest for life, bravery, and determination! In the words of Henry Dog:
“Never ever ever give up!!’”.
On raising a whopping £1870, Mike says: “The sky dive was the most intense, insane, terrifying and awesome thing I have done in my life. Super proud of myself and what I was able to raise for such an amazing cause.”
The Directors at Hazelton Mountford match-funded the final amount raised – £935 – to a total of £1870.
