TR employee to tackle daring charity skydive with fellow rugby ‘scrummies’
Lyndsey Case, Corporate Accountant and Company Secretary for Trifast Plc, parent company of TR Fastenings based at headquarters in Uckfield, is one of four Newick RFC ‘scrummies’ (the nickname for wives and girlfriends of rugby players) planning to undertake a daring skydive at the end of the current season.
On 30th June, Lyndsey, along with fellow scrummies Kerry, Sarah and Cecilia will be jumping from a plane in Headcorn to raise money for Sussex charity St Peter & St James’ Hospice, a cause close to all of their hearts.
, located in North Chailey, Mid Sussex, provides care for patients from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and the surrounding villages. It aims to “make a positive difference to the experience of everybody in the community who faces death or bereavement, by offering choice and support through expert care, knowledge and understanding.”
Lyndsey, who has worked at Trifast for 17 years, says: “I can’t quite believe how quickly the skydive is coming around, but I’m determined to face my fears and literally jump out of my comfort zone because the hospice does truly wonderful work and is such a worthwhile cause. We are hoping to raise £1600 and we will be so proud if we can achieve our target.”
