Kathrin Hasenkampf has left two charities jumping for joy after she jumped out of a plane in aid of the Jersey Cancer Trust and Cancer Research UK. Kathrin, a bookkeeper at GoldMoney, decided to take the plunge after being inspired by her work mate's strength in dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
She had perfect weather conditions for the tandem skydive, 'It was an absolutely amazing experience. The best part was when I left the plane and went into the free fall, it only lasts around thirty seconds but was incredible. Then when I arrived at the Gunsite area my friends and colleagues were waiting for me and cheered as I landed.'
Kathrin has raised £677.45 for Cancer Research UK and £600 for Jersey Cancer Trust. She paid for the jump herself as she wanted all the donations to go straight to the charities.
GoldMoney staff not only supported Kathrin for the actual jump, but she raised further funds with cake sales at the offices. CEO, Geoff Turk, also made sure the company donated, 'This was a great show of team support, the fact that Kathrin was inspired by one of her colleagues and then had many others turning out to cheer her on, goes to show how both as an individual and as a team we can make a difference for a very worthwhile cause.'

Historically gold has been an excellent way to preserve purchasing power over long periods of time. For example, today it takes almost the same amount of gold to buy a barrel of crude oil as it did 60 years ago which is in stark contrast to the price of oil in terms of national currencies such as the US dollar.
