Daredevils’ super fundraising effort


A


lmost 100 daredevils took the 100ft plunge at the Dixons Retail building in Hemel


Hempstead for the Hospice of St Francis in their annual abseil event on Sunday, September 25. This year, alongside Abbots man Ross


Hammond were superheros, teenage mutant ninja turtles, tutu-wearing abseilers and rugby players from Saracens. The rugby team has partnered with the hospice


this year in the hope of raising them £100,000 and will take on a number of challenges set by the hospice in order to achieve their target. Around 30 faced their fears and bravely


plummeted to the ground cheered on by their team mates waiting below. Every penny raised at events like this help the


hospice continue giving care to people in the local community who have a life threatening illness


and support for their families. Everyone aged 11 to 70 enjoyed the day and


went home with a certificate for their achievement. Emma Day, event organiser and community


fundraiser for the hospice, said: ―Everyone had an amazing time, it was a really fun day and for those people who really were terrified at the top, we take our hats off to you. Thank you to everyone for taking part and please do keep the sponsorship coming in.‖ If you would like to sponsor a Saracens ruby


player, please visit www.justgiving.co.uk/ saracensappeal or simply text Sari01 (£3, £5 or £10) to 70070 to help them meet their target. To find out how you can help the hospice visit www.stfrancis.org.uk and sign up for more of their fundraising events.
