UPDATE - September 2013
Although some donations are still coming in, I am delighted to report that our brave charity abseilers have raised over £6,500 for head and neck cancer research and support. It's an amazing achievement.
So a huge THANK YOU to everyone - abseilers, supporters, sponsors - we couldn't have done it without you!!!
- Update August 2013
THEY DID IT!!!
I'm delighted to report that, on Saturday 3rd August, a brave team of ten patients, carers, friends and medical staff faced their fears and successfully completed a 150ft free fall abseil from Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral.
Although the weather was a bit blustery, the sun did come out to join the crowd of cheering supporters waiting, with both anticipation and trepidation, at the foot of the Cathedral's magnificent main entrance.
Feelings were equally mixed amongst the team. A couple of our intrepid abseilers were literally shaking all the way down - but they all did it none the less!
As promised, we even had 'Spider-nan' singing and reciting comic verse as she went.
But although the event is now complete, our job is only half done - we need to collect all that sponsor money so generously pledged..!
So if you've agreed to sponsor someone, now is the time to track them down and give them your donation - don't forget to ask to see some of the photos! And even if you haven't sponsored them or the team yet, it's still not too late to add your support with a donation at: www.justgiving.com/HeadandNeckCharityAbseil-2013
We'll be giving an update later in the month about the final amount raised - but at present it just remains to say a VERY WELL DONE and HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who took part.
