Abseil raises thousands for hospital charity

Thousands of pounds has been raised for the N&N by more than 60 brave fundraisers who took part in a charity abseil.

Organised by the N&N Hospitals Charity, more than 60 people took on the challenge at the weekend which started 40ft up on the fourth floor of the East Atrium.

Dave Talbot, from Adventure Events, provided full training and calmed the nerves before the abseilers made their descent.

Among those taking part was Chief Nurse Nancy Fontaine, Chairman Tom Spink, head of Chaplaincy Rev Adrian Woodbridge, and Chaplain Rev Penny Warner, along with fellow staff members and members of the public.

Lynn Crombie, from the Hospital Charity said: “With donations and sponsorship still coming in, a final figure has yet to be confirmed but we expect that the event will have raised at least £7,000 which will benefit staff and patients at the N&N.

“We’d like to thank everyone who took part, came along and supported their friends and colleagues and donated to our charity.”
