Volunteers get ready for abseil

Have your say

BRAVE volunteers will abseil down one of the city’s most dominant buildings in aid of the British Red Cross.

A charity is offering Sheffield volunteers the opportunity to take part for just £10.

All places are accompanied by a fully-trained abseil expert and the money goes towards the Red Cross’ work in wore-torn countries and the people who have been affected.

Max Newton, Community Fundraiser for the Red Cross in Sheffield, said: “The lives of those affected by prolonged hospitalisation, house fires, floods, earthquakes, war and famine are truly transformed by events such as the Steel City Abseil.

“Places are strictly limited, so we urge people to sign up.”

The event is on Saturday, October 28, and costs £10 to enter though sponsorship is encouraged.
