Two colleagues at supplier TG Lynes are preparing to be strapped to the wings of a plane for a charity fundraiser at 135mph.
Taylor Unwin, from Barnet, and David Batey, from Shuttleworth in Bedfordshire, are taking part in a wingwalking challenge in aid of Teens Unite. The pair both work at heating, plumbing and air movement materials supplier TG Lynes in Enfield.
While Taylor, a 20-year-old warehouse operative, insists he is undaunted about what lies ahead, sales executive David, 56, admits he will be nervous when the challenge takes place on December 9 at Old Warden Airfield in Shuttleworth.
Both men are hoping to raise at least £600 each. Donations can be made at either https://www.justgiving.com/page/taylorwingwalk2023 or https://www.justgiving.com/page/davidswingwalk
TG Lynes supported Teens Unite with £7,500 worth of product and labour through its Helping Hands campaign last year. The charity provides people aged between 13 and 24 with the social, emotional, and physical support that is vital to their cancer recovery.
