Employee Skydive!

 Nu-Heat employees Sarah Dean and Pete Bell took the skies this August to throw themselves out of a perfectly good aeroplane, all in aid of Bowel Cancer UK.

The pair jumped from 15,000 ft. and ‘enjoyed’ a full 60 seconds of free-fall at 120mph before settling into a ‘relaxing’ parachute ride back to the ground!

“The skydive was amazing; I would do it again now if I could!” says Sarah. 

“A huge thank you to those that kindly sponsored us; we really appreciate your generosity.” says Peter.

Sarah and Pete raised a fantastic £1,800 for Bowel Cancer UK.

Bowel Cancer UK aims to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.

100km Jurassic Classic cycle challenge!

 

Nick and Rob, both Nu-Heat employees, completed the 100km Jurassic Classic cycle challenge in August in support of Prostate Cancer UK.

The ride, which is named as one of the ‘top 10 cycling events in the UK’ on the Guardian website, saw over 1000 riders complete the course this year.

“The ride follows the Jurassic Coastline so we saw some fantastic scenery along the way,” says Rob.

“Both of us made it back to Exmouth within 4 ½ hours and the complimentary ‘end of ride’ pasty was very welcome!”

Nu-Heat Charity Summer Party

This summer Nu-Heat held a Summer Party in aid of SADS UK, following the tragic loss of one of their colleagues and Macmillan Cancer Support as so many of the staff have been affected by cancer, whether that be a family member, friend or colleague.

Nu-Heat raised £1400 for two charites.

 “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity, enthusiasm and support by everyone for both deserving charities.  We all had a thoroughly enjoyable day with the staff and their families fundraising for both charities.”  Alison Troop, Nu-Heat Company Secretary & Director.
