It was a busy weekend (again) for us this past weekend.

Firstly, we had an abseil at Baitings Dam for British Red Cross. We have ran this event for the past few years and its always a popular abseil – even though its over 150 feet high! Its an iconic abseil and the three ropes we supplied were kept busy!

Secondly, we ran another abseil, this time at Leasowe Lighthouse for Marie Curie. Lighthouses always make great abseils and its nice for us landlocked Sheffielders to get a chance to be near the sea.

Thirdly, we ran our own open abseil at the Trafford Centre in Manchester. The Bell Tower is another huge abseil (165+ feet)! We had participants from Anxiety UK, Willowbrook Hospice, Meningitis Trust, Chicks, St Anns Hospice, Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital, Seashell trust, CF Trust, MGA, B.I.R.D, Great Ormond Street, Victim Support, West lancs Womens refuge and Independent Options plus a few other individuals supporting their own charities. The weather wasnt great but it didnt stop the abseilers getting down!

Finally, we ran the CF Trusts Hadrians Wall challenge weekend. The 18 mile walk is a good challenge as the route covers some pretty hilly terrain – the participants certainly knew they had been part of a challenge! Well done to all the ladies involved!
