Fundraisers hope to raise £10,000 in 140ft abseil

Thrill seekers could abseil down a 140ft building to raise vital funds for the RSPCA in Sheffield.

On 5th May 2019 60 people will descend the Sheffield Hallam Owen building to raise funds for animal welfare income for the RSPCA Sheffield branch.

The Sheffield branch are working with BOLD Adventures to make this fundraising event happen.

The branch needs to raise money to recoup £10,000 after two of their water pumps broke on boxing day. They have been without water for 6 weeks.

Phillip Morton, Head of Fundraising for the RSPCA Sheffield Animal Centre said: “I hate heights but it’s part of the challenge to show how passionate we are about the animals.”

People will be able to do this for free if they can raise £100 by May.

There will be hourly abseils from 10am until 6pm on the 5th May.

Mr Morton said: “All the money raised will go to the RSPCA sheffield branch as we are a local branch and we’re not nationally funded for daytime costs.”

Just over £600 has been raised so far.
