Bungee Jump fundraisers get business support

A Wigan car retailer sprung into action by helping its employees raise money for a cancer hospital.

Emma Bolton, 21, and Selina Wilkins, 25 from Corkills Volkswagen, have been busy raising sponsorship for a reverse bungee jump to help raise funds for a new Cancer treatment room at Christie Hospital.

Corkills Volkswagen funded the Wigan ladies jump which too place at the Mount Hotel in Orrell on May 23rd.

The fundraising duo raised £252 for the hospital.

Emma said: “We really appreciated the support of Corkills and our work colleagues. Their kind donations funded the bungee jump and helped us toward our fundraising goal.

“We have even had donations from supportive customers wishing us the best. The community really got behind us and it was an exhilarating day.”

Christie Hospital is one of Europe’s leading cancer centres which treats over 40,000 patients a year.

Carl Hazelton, brand manager at Corkills Volkswagen said: “We were all very happy to support Emma and Selina in their fund raising efforts and we hope they found the day just as rewarding.”
