Liverpool Cathedral abseil for charity
News

This year some brave souls are abseiling off Liverpool’s iconic Anglican Cathedral - all in aid of The Brain Charity! We asked them why they would do something so crazy and this is what they had to say:

Sarah Coughlin
“I’ve been training hard so I can walk up the stairs. That will be the big achievement for me, the abseil will be a nice break from walking around on the day.”

Rose Griffiths
“At 60 I had a heart attack, at 65 I had a stroke, so I decided to do something slightly different for my 70th Birthday.”

Karen Swan
“I am doing it as I think the charity is achieving amazing things and this is a great way to raise awareness and funds.”

Bill Chambers
“The main reason I’m doing it is because your CEO Nanette twisted my arm. My wife thinks I’m mad and I’m looking forward to it about as much as I would look forward to a bad hangover!”

Emma-Jane England and Martin Rawsthorne
Emma says, “I did the abseil last year for Stroke Association and I wanted to do it again this year and thought The Brain Charity was the perfect place to support. Martin wanted to tag along too. He is very experienced with doing all sorts of fundraising for all sorts of charities.”

Lorna McMahon
“I’m handing in my master’s dissertation in the week before and thought what better way to celebrate the end of my degree then to jump off a building?”

Siobhan Mealey
“Why not really? On a more serious note, I have worked at The Brain Charity for a number of years now and I am extremely passionate about my job. I meet incredible people every day. I thought this would be a great way to show how much I care”
