Be an abseiling dare devil for breast cancer trials charity

FANCY a daredevil challenge this spring? Then why not try your head for heights and join the thrilling 110ft abseil down Harlow Water Tower in aid of a local breast cancer clinical trials charity?
Last year 50 people took the challenge at Church Langley, raising an amazing £10,000 in sponsorship. On Saturday 3 May, the research unit at St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping, and Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow is doing it all over again.
Mum-of-two Fiona Winspear, 42, from Thorley, Bishop’s Stortford, who took the plunge in 2013 raising £300, said: “It was frightening but fun. We all supported each other as we climbed up the ladders inside the tower with shaky hands and once I was actually abseiling I couldn’t stop smiling. It was a thrill and we raised a huge amount for a great cause – I’d recommend it to anyone, even if you’re a bit scared of heights like me.”
