Wirral abseilers take the plunge for charities
2:37pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
MORE than 80 people abseiled down the side of Leasowe Lighthouse for charity at the weekend.
Organisers say the event was the best so far with 83 brave souls, ranging in age from 12 to 83, taking part.
Most had registered in advance but a couple of spectators were inspired to sign up on the day.
A spokesman for Friends Of Leasowe Lighthouse, who were behind the fundraiser, said: "It was good to see so many spectators and supporters throughout the day and the atmosphere was happy and enjoyable.
"Many people who were fundraising for a particular charity, arrived as a group and gave each other moral support, but some brave souls were acting independently."
The 13 organisations set to benefit from the abseil are Motability, Blacon Community Trust, Terral Morgan Memorial Fund, St.Joseph’s Primary School, Monste Benitez Foundation, Brain Tumour Research, Mountains for Mia, Mosslands “Journey of your mind”, Alzheimers research, Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, Catch 22, Bolton Methodist Church and Ruby's appeal, in aid of little girl who needs to go to America for specialist medical treatment.
The next abseil is scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014.
If you are interested in taking part, call 07737 822 976 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for registration forms and further information.
