At BBC Fire Protection we take our Social Responsibility seriously. We believe in the ethos of David Cameron’s ‘Big Society’, so we are delighted to bring you the following report.
Paula Kelly is one of our valued employees and one of very few female Fire Alarm engineers in our industry. She recently took it upon herself to play her part in the ‘Big Society’.
Typically, the most she falls is from, her bed in the morning, but not on that particular day. Instead, she fell 20,000 feet: fortunately with a parachute attached!. (It confirmed what many of us have thought at BBC Fire Protection for a long time – she’s definitely MAD!)
We asked Paula why; “I’ve always wanted to do a skydive, and once I’d decided to do it, I thought it would be a good opportunity to raise some money for a good cause” she said.
Paula chose Cancer Research UK charity as the selected beneficiaries, again illustrating her social responsibility. Paula explained “there are many peoples lives decimated by the effects of Cancer, not just those who have it, but partners, families and friends of those affected”.
We say good choice, well done to you Paula; ‘go girl!’
