It was another busy weekend with 4 seperate events happening. We had a big open abseil off the Clock Tower at the Trafford Centre in Manchester. The abseil is a big one at nearly 60 metres or nearly 200 feet in ‘old money’! With just under 250 abseilers over 2 days the guys were kept busy in quite difficult and windy conditions. Loads of charities were invlolved and a great deal of money was raised over the 2 days!

We ran another abseil for the Red Cross off Baitings Dam near Ripponden. Its another ‘big’ abseil at 55metres and the Red Cross were very happy with the nearly 140 people they had who raised money for their charity.

We had another open event at the Mersey Tunnel shaft. Its another great abseil and, again, plenty of charities were invlolved.

Finally, we ran a Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge for Radio Aire and their Cash For Kids campaign. Well done to everyone as it was a 100% succesful event with all the walkers finishing in under 12 hours. The walkers included crew and actors from the ITV’s Emmerdale programme all of whom turned out to be fun and interesting people and were a real pleasure to be on the challenge with! Video of the trip will shortly appear on the ITV’s website at http://www.itv.com/Soaps/emmerdale/?intcmp=NAV_2004aa
