26 Mar StEMMH Project Team Charity Skydive
The St Erth Multi-Modal Hub (StEMMH) project team are undertaking a skydive to raise money for charity, Children’s Hospice South West.
The team of fundraisers from StEMMH, include; Stuart Angus, Kieran Mooney, Anna Kelly, Sean Vesey, David Lynch, Garikai Simango, Curtis Harrold, Seamus Harrold from Wills Bros Civil Engineering Ltd and WWA Civils Project Manager, Kieren Couch.
They will be undertaking the tandem jump at 10,000 feet, experiencing a 120mph free fall followed by a tranquil (hopefully) descent back down to earth. All this whilst taking in fantastic views of Perranporth and across Cornwall.
The skydive raises money for Children’s Hospice South West. The charity has been caring for children will life-threatening conditions for over 25 years, through hospice provision and family support services. They are dedicated to enabling children to make the most of their lives, providing the best possible care and support for them.
The team are always looking to support initiatives for charity from raising awareness of prostate cancer, collecting Easter Eggs for the Pirate FM Appeal and now jumping to support children with life-limiting conditions.
Kieren Couch, said: “I am delighted to be taking part in this charity skydive, raising money for a very worthy cause.”
“I was dubious to start with when approached by the Wills Bros team, as jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft doesn’t seem very logical. After a brief period of reflection and being coerced by the enthusiasm of all involved; and owing to the fact we will positively impact a great local charity, I (un) willingly committed to the cause”
The StEMMH project in West Cornwall for Cornwall Council will provide additional car parking and improvements to the highway infrastructure near the St Erth Railway Station. It will enable the integration of rail, bus, walking, and cycling aimed at residents, visitors and commuters and will help towards tackling congestion on the highway network.
WWA is appointed on this ERDF funded project to provide Project Control services, including Project Management and Quantity Surveying services.
