News: Best Buy dive head first into Rotherham


New recruits at Best Buy at Parkgate Shopping, Rotherham took a leap of faith recently by bungee jumping for a local charity.

Organised in partnership with Rotherham's training provider The Source Skills Academy the trio aim to raised hundreds of pounds, for the local charity Bluebell Wood by bungee jumping dressed as superheroes.

To mark the June opening of Best Buy, the world's leading technology store, the retailer has shown its community spirit by appointing three of their customer and product specialists; Laura Whitworth, Jonny Gascoigne and Pauline Hepburn to participate in a 150ft plunge that was held at the Abyss at Magna.

Peter Bryant, Departmental Manager at Best Buy Rotherham said: "This is a great joint initiative between The Source and Best Buy in Rotherham. Not only is this a great sense of achievement for the individuals involved, but it also gives Best Buy an opportunity to support such a worthy cause. It was great to see our guys taking the plunge dressed as superheroes."

Mike Denby, Business Communication Manager at The Source Skills Academy, added: "Best Buy is a great example of a national organisation that is passionate about supporting the local community. We have been working with Best Buy in recent months to train their staff prior to opening the new Rotherham store and are pleased to be working with such a community orientated retailer."
