Residents of Greenwood Park Retirement Village in Tauranga organised a group skydive to raise funds for a St John Ambulance.
The idea was sparked by 95-year-old resident and experienced skydiver, Jean Crabtree, who noticed that another retirement village had a St John Ambulance branded with their name.
Jean wanted to achieve the same for Greenwood Park Retirement Village and set up planning how to raise the $300,000 needed for fully kitted ambulance.
The organisers of the skydive event approached First Mortgage Trust to be one of the sponsors of the skydive. We gladly accepted the opportunity to support this cause and are looking forward to the upcoming jump to see the skydivers in action.
The group now had 18 jumpers, including residents, friends, families, and staff members, boasting a remarkable combined age of 1,120 years.
If you would like to donate to help raise funds for the ambulance or learn more about the skydive please visit: www.skydive95.com

As a corporate sponsor we pay-it-forward by way of a monthly donation which is distributed to local businesses who then produce goods and services for local charities to help those in the community that are in need.
