"Pull for Sight" - ORBIS Ireland Charity Event 

csr pull for sight event

KPMG Aviation Finance & Leasing entered a team for the 2013 ‘Pull for Sight’ ORBIS Ireland charity event on 20 July 2013.

Our team joined 11 other groups to pull an 85 tonne aircraft over 12 feet at Shannon Airport. We strained to drag the equivalent weight of 21 elephants the full distance but managed it in an impressive 12.5 seconds!

 

Over the previous 3 years, the ORBIS Ireland plane pull has raised over €30,000 which has helped to address the high prevalence of avoidable blindness in Ethiopia.
