I'm abseiling 140ft for charity - Donations needed


I have signed up to abseil 140ft down the Park Inn Hotel in Bedford all in the name of charity.

The event will be held Sunday October 21st and you can sponsor me online at:

Any donations will be really appreciated my myself and my nominated charity AbilityNet.

AbilityNet is a national charity helping children and adults with disabilities access computers and the internet by adapting and adjusting their computer equipment so they can enjoy the fullest possible independence and achieve their goals in education, employment or simply by keeping in touch with friends and family.

So please dig deep and sponsor me online.

Many thanks for your support.

Sounds like an excellent cause Trev. Hope it goes well. I'll go and have a look at the sponsorship bit in a mo.

Don't forget to get some pics so we can all see you zooming down the side of this building. emoticon

Thanks for your donation Gary emoticon I really appreciate it.

I'm hoping a couple of friends are going to make it there to take some pics so I will be able to post some.

Should be an interesting day, I found out AFTER I had volunteered that i might be suffering from vertigo? Guess I will find out if the nurse was right. emoticon

Well I done it! emoticon

Wasn't too bad until half way down when I decided to see how much further I had to go. Looking down was a big mistake and my legs turned to jelly. That was even worse than climbing over the top and trying to stand on a tiny ledge while they explain what to do.

If you're on Facebook you can see the photos at:

Well done Trev! Always a mistake looking down though emoticon emoticon

How much did you raise in the end?

Any chance of a few pics on here as we only have a dialup here in the village and facebook takes about 15 minutes to load on a slow connection (seriously! emoticon )
