In a recent charity skydive by our very own James Webber, over £1,700 was raised, beating its target of £1,000 by 70%+! As this number continues to rise, we’ll take a quick look back at the event and just what the ‘Jump for Miles’ means to us all here at James Webber Recruitment.
‘Jump for Miles’ gets its name from Miles Webber, the son of James, who lost his life in November 2012.
As a way of saying his thanks for the work done by Wiltshire Air Ambulance, James bravely took to the skies in order to raise money for the charity, which will go towards helping fund the fantastic service provided by the Wiltshire Air Ambulance staff.
Despite being a little daunted by the height, James did the 15,000 feet jump all to raise money for a good cause!
Miles has also been short-listed to win the ‘Young Hero of the Year Award’ in the Pride of South Devon Awards 2014, as hosted by the Herald Express.
The public put forward Miles’ name after reading his story and now he could potentially win this prestigious award.

Thank you to everybody who kindly gave whatever they could in order for us to beat our goal and help the Wiltshere Air Ambulance service continue the fantastic work they do every single day.
