Doll&Bone has a long and illustrious history of collaborating with Charitable causes - be it our classic Birmingham Children's Hospital line, where we teamed up with 16 illustrators and designers to create a line of shirts based on D&B founder Will Martins own son's ideas. Or our recent auctions where we split profit 50-50 to the winners charity of choice, to our upcoming work with Spina Bifida UK and Women Of STEM charity lines we are already working on.
Now, we are going to be collaborating again with the NSPCC for a series of Auctions and sales to raise money toward company designer Andi's parachute jump in September.
Andi - alongside four or five colleagues - will be jumping from a plane to raise money and awareness for the NSPCC and is aiming to raise a minimum of £400 by the 25th September.
The NSPCC is one of the UK's leading charities. 1 in 5 children in the UK have suffered abuse or neglect. That’s why, across the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, they’re working to protect children today and prevent abuse from happening tomorrow.
The jump will take place on 28th September from Brackley Airfield in the UK, and we would love if our fans and followers could find it in their hearts to donate toward this brilliant cause.
To make matters worse (for Andi) he is also having to shed 8lbs in a weight loss program before the jump, and he is not a big fan of heights... So please donate generously wherever you can!
Andi says about the jump:
"It's been a bucket-list item for a while, jumping out of a plane, so when the opportunity came about I think I was the first person to put my name forward for the experience.
Ever since I was young though heights have not been my thing. I took a very long fall from a tree top when I was a child and ever since it's been a bit of a challenge to face great heights... So what better way to tackle this fear than to strap myself to another human and thrown myself out of a plane!!
I cannot wait to do this for such a magnificent cause and I am really looking forward to the experience!"

Keep your eyes peeled for more updates as we get them, including some tally updates, and photos from the day itself.
