Leeds tyre dealer to skydive for Motor Neurone charity
Charles English, managing director/owner of Alba Tyres in Leeds, will take part in the ‘Only Fools Jump In’ team charity skydive on 1 April to raise a total of £20,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA). Funds raised will support people suffering from MNDA in the Yorkshire area and ongoing research; English’s support of the charity is motivated in part by his godson, James’s loss of his father-in-law to the disease last year.

Cam Systems told Tyrepress.com about the upcoming event, and will be one of English’s major sponsors. English says: “Although I’m pretty sporty and active, I’ve never done anything like this before. But it’s a cause so close to my heart that I’ve set myself this goal. I’m very grateful to our customers and partners like Cam Systems for sponsoring this amazing – and some would say crazy – experience.”
Mike Allen, managing director of Cam Systems, comments: “The challenge Charles has set himself is incredible and very honourable. We’re proud to sponsor this cause and from all at Cam we wish him all the very best and hope the entire team reaches its target.”
