A GROUP of daredevil employees from Lloyds Banking Group will be taking to the skies to help raise money for charity.

The staff, who all work at the company’s Centre Park base, will tackle a skydive strapped to a professional instructor on May 10.

It is all part of their fundraising campaign for Teenage Cancer Trust’s appeal to raise £500,000 for a new cancer unit for 13 to 19 year olds at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

And as well as the parachute jump staff will also be completing the Great Manchester Run and the Snowdonia Zip Wire Challenge.

The charity is also calling on 500 companies, schools or groups to raise £1,000 each to help reach their target.
