Abseilers Assemble!

04 April 2019

Fundraising

Want to reach new heights? Now you can by going up, up and away by abseiling the 154 foot Tower Block at Southend University Hospital for the hospital ward or department of your choice.

Elise Fleetwood, Events & Corporate Relations Manager for Southend Hospital Charity, said: "The event takes place on Saturday 18 May and previous years have seen the likes of Captain America, Supergirl and even Deadpool take part.

"Although the real heroes are those taking part to raise money for the Southend Hospital ward or department of their choice. Last year we had almost 100 people take part and they raised an estimated £40,000 between them."

Spandex or wearing your pants over your trousers not your thing? Don't worry we'll just say you've come as Clark Kent or Diana Prince instead, so a superhero outfit is optional, but a super time is guaranteed for all.

Construction firm ryanandwalsh are the sponsors of the event, their support means that every penny raised by our abseilers will benefit the hospital.
