LJLA plane pull ropes in ₤2,500 for Alder Hey

COLLEAGUES at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) , on 19 December 2017, joined by employees from a number of local companies in a plane pull challenge all aimed at raising money for the Airport's charity partner Alder Hey Children's Hospital. Blue Air who has an aircraft based at Liverpool with flights to 7 destinations from LJLA, very kindly let the Airport use one of their Boeing 737 aircraft weighing almost 40 tonnes for the plane pull, with teams competing against one another to see who could pull the aircraft the furthest in 1 minute.  Companies represented at the challenge included:- Matalan, Santander, Gaskells Waste, Peel, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, Morgan Sindall, Sovini, Swissport, South Liverpool Homes, The Land Trust and the Airport itself, with Matalan coming out on top by managing to pull the plane an incredible 49.2m in 60 seconds.

Organised by employees at the Airport, the challenge raised approximately ₤2,500.00 for Alder Hey Children's Hospital and will be added to over ₤80,000 raised by Airport employees over the past 12 months for the charity.  Carol Dutton, HR and Community Director for LJLA commented:- "This has been an amazing effort by everyone involved and a big thank you goes to all the companies who gave up time to take part in this unique challenge and particularly to Blue Air for providing one of their aircraft. This is one of the highlights of our fundraising calendar with more much needed funds going to Alder Hey."
