Feeling the fear and abseiling it anyway
Cllr Alison Hoare, our Chairman, will be facing her fear of heights head on when she abseils the Emirates Spinnaker Tower on Saturday 26 March (2pm).
The 100 metre descent, which Cllr Hoare hopes will raise £2,000 for Oakhaven Hospice, and the Firefly orphanage in Kathmandu, takes an average of 10 minutes.
When asked how she is feeling about the abseil, Cllr Hoare said, "This is the scariest thing I have ever done". Around 3,000 people have abseiled the Tower before Cllr Hoare, who added, "I think this is one event I definitely won't be wearing my Chairman's chain for."
