We Are Randox | Céline skydives into fundraising for AWARE NI
We’re passionate about celebrating the kindness and generosity of our Randox employees. Each have their own unique and interesting story to tell and many give up their spare time to support their local community and help those in need.
Their compassion and commitment is what makes Randox the successful company it is today, and this month Customer Relationship Executive, Céline Hasson, emulated this perfectly, with an adrenaline-filled display of bravery and dedication!
On Sunday 3rd November, Céline took to the skies for a charity skydive, in aid of our 2018/2019 charity partner, AWARE NI.
Below Céline explains why she wanted to take part in the charity skydive, and what it meant to her to be able to raise funds for the main depression charity for Northern Ireland.
Céline Hasson, Customer Relationship Executive, said;
“People with mental health conditions deserve as much support and compassion as those will physical health conditions. So with this in mind, back in May I signed myself up for a skydive, with a goal to fundraise £500+ for AWARE NI.
“Unfortunately the weather was against us on a number of the occasions we had previously planned to Skydive, but we got there in the end and were able to complete the challenge in November.
“I’m sure every person reading this has either suffered or knows someone who has/is suffering from depression, so please donate to a great cause like AWARE NI. Let’s support them to help support others.”
