Macmillan Reaches New Heights
The cancer charity is one of the lead charities for the Forth Rail Bridge abseil, which is organised by the Rotary Club of South Queensferry. Participants will have the chance to abseil 165ft SAS style, (ie freefall) from the Forth Rail Bridge onto the beach below.
Fundraising Manager for Edinburgh, Jayne Forbes, said “The Forth Rail Bridge challenge is a real adrenaline rush for the daring and the ultimate challenge for the rest of us! No previous experience is necessary and it’s suitable for everyone over the age of fourteen. All of the funds raised for Macmillan from the event will support our vital services for people affected by cancer. We help people in many ways, from specialist nurses and doctors, to help and advice for people who have financial worries as a result of their cancer diagnosis. So why not sign up today and help us ensure no one in Edinburgh faces cancer alone?”
The registration fee for the event is £25 and participants pledge to raise a further £125. To sign up, contact Macmillan on 0300 1000 200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
