Leading business executives from across our business ambassador network are raising funds for the charity by raising as much money as possible from colleagues, friends and family who would like to see them thrown out of a plane.
It is hoped that funds raised will help to continue, wellbeing support to both inpatients and outpatients such as therapies to help relieve stress and support recovery, hairdressing, podiatry and 1:1 support in liaising with their employer during a mental and physically taxing period of treatment.
Dale Carr, Director of TopCat Window Binds in Kirkintilloch, said: “The Beatson is really close to my heart, I am trying to raise as much money as possible for those who need it most. “Now that I’ve been to the airport and seen how high the planes go, I’m quite nervous!”
The exciting jump, is scheduled for September and will take place above Glenrothes. Our very own Ian Murray, BBC presenter James Mackenzie, Murray Glen, Account Manager at Hollicom PR, Dale Carr, owner of sponsor TopCat Window Blinds, and Clydebank Head Teach Mark Hunter are among those taking part. The line-up is complete with a touch of showbiz sparkle as business leaders are joined by Scot Squad, River City and stage star Jordan Young.
The Ballbusters will not be the first to go where eagles dare to fly as in 2019, 17 amazing women came together to take on the same challenge. These women are known as the Beatson Booby Birds and raised a wonderful £86,000.
Martin Cawley, CEO of Beatson Cancer Charity said: “I’d like to thank all of the Ballbusters for supporting us as they aim to raise £100,000 with this feat which I’ve no doubt will be both terrifying and exhilarating”
