Christy Media Sales Manager Skydives for Charity
Our intrepid UK and Europe Sales Manager Mark Gale recently threw himself out of a plane, taking part in a 13,000 ft skydive to raise money for the Hope for Hollie Campaign.
Mark braved a tandem jump at the Hinton skydive centre, near Brackley earlier this month. The jump raised almost £20,000 for Hope for Hollie, a campaign set up by a Milton Keynes family when their daughter was diagnosed with Niemann Pick Type C.
Niemann Pick Type C is an extremely rare metabolic condition which causes neurological decline and for which there is no cure. Less than 100 children suffer from this condition in the UK and only 1,000 worldwide.
The campaign supports the Niemann Pick Charity, which funds research, helps families affected by the disease and organises trips to the US where there is more investment and stronger research programmes for the condition.

Well done Mark from all the Christy Media Solutions team!
The Christy Media team have returned from Amsterdam after a very successful show at IBC. This year’s show was one of the busiest ever with over 48,000 visitors, and we welcomed hundreds of those to our stand in Hall 6.
The team met with interesting potential candidates from a range of backgrounds, and we discussed some exciting new recruitment projects with our clients. With so many visitors from the broadcast industry, we found the show a fantastic place to network and meet up with contacts – both old and new.
3D was a major theme at IBC this year, and we were able to experience some of the most exciting new innovations in the sector at many of the 1,300 other stands at the exhibition. New developments in mobile, digital and IPTV platforms were also on display.
Thank you to everyone that visited the stand, and to all those that we met with at the show. We are looking forward to a busy time following IBC, and are already excited about planning next year’s event.
