2017 Abseiling Fundraising Event
Our abseiling fundraising event took place on Sunday 4 June 2017. From a platform on the side of Emirates Spinnaker Tower, the brave participants got to enjoy breath-taking views of Portsmouth Harbour, the city and the Solent before embarking on a descent down the Tower. Participants including actresses Sally Phillips and Millie Brady abseiled down from a whopping 100 metres above Gunwharf Quays. Afterwards, many of them said that the experience was unforgettable. This years event was on behalf of Toucan Diversity and Me too & Co, a charity based in Richmond. The charity works with families who have children with additional needs. It was set up by our Development Director/Chair, Anne-Marie Asgari in 2006.
Our 20 abseilers managed to raise an amazing £21,400 for both organisations. A very big Thank You to all the intrepid people involved.
