NGK supports great-grandfather’s charity skydive

By Mike Smith on June 14, 2019

NGK is sponsoring 82-year old Les Paul, a warehouse operative for independent distributor and NGK customer Thor, who is planning a charity skydive to raise money for The British Heart Foundation.

Les, who works as a warehouse operative for Thor at its branch at Fengate, Peterborough, will take to the air for his fifth skydive at Sibson Airfield near Peterborough on Sunday, July 14, 2019.

He said: “I really enjoy doing it. When I did my first one, I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t more nervous. Each one is different and is a memorable experience. If I can raise some money for The British Heart Foundation by donations from companies such as NGK and Thor and friends and colleagues, then so well and good.”

Stuart Bayne, Sales Manager – North for NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “We are delighted to support Les in his skydive. It is an amazing effort for a man of his age who is still a very active and valuable member of the Thor team.”

If you would like to make a donation, please contact Les on 01733 342582 (evenings only).
