Ross to drop 100 feet for hospice


A


n Abbots Langley man has decided to drop 100ft to raise money for the Hospice of St


Francis in an abseiling this month. Ross Hammond, 47, who has just started his


own business called Success for Change, will be doing the abseil with his nephew Adam, who lives in Essex. Ross said: ―I have known the hospice indirectly


through friends who have had members of their family or friends being cared for there. They have been amazed with the facilities and how well people have been looked after and most importantly that the hospice does all this for free. ―I‘ve been looking for a way of doing something


for the Hospice of St Francis and am in a better position now I have started my own business to complete some more personal challenges I have always wanted to do. ―I did joke the other day that I would complete


the A to Z of adventurous challenges so this abseil starts with A – what would I do for Z?‖


Ross Hammond and nephew Adam abseiling for hospice.


The Hospice of St Francis is looking for other


volunteers to literally ‗go over the top for the hospice‘ and abseil 100 feet down the Dixon‘s retail building in Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead, all for a good cause. Registration costs just £25 with a minimum


sponsorship requirement of just £100. Under 18s need to pay just £20 to register and raise a minimum of £50. Community fundraiser Emma Day said:


―Ross‘s entry just shows that anyone can take part in this fantastic event either as a personal challenge or just as a fun thing to do whilst raising sponsorship at the same time.‖ All the money raised will go towards helping


patients and their families coping with a life limiting illness. Further information, call 01442 869555. To sponsor Ross and Adam please log onto www.justgiving.com/rossadam.
