Congratulations to Shirley Alcroft for overcoming the biggest of her phobias (HEIGHTS) in order to complete an abseil for Bolton Hospice.  Shirley needed the help of a ‘Man in a Uniform’ in order to get her down the Abseil Platform, well that was her excuse!!   Shirley has raised over £500 for Bolton Hospice with the help & support of her family & friends, although the generosity of her biggest supporters meant that Manorlands Hospice also got £100 to help their cause.

One of Shirley’s biggest fans was her MUM-IN-LAW, who at the age of 89 has broken High Adventure’s ABSEIL RECORD, becoming the oldest person to abseil down the platform.  Tim & Chris Alcroft commented that:

Teresa was like a ‘rat up a drainpipe’

when ascending the ladder to get to the top of the platform, and then commented to her family that it was more difficult to clean her garage roof than climb onto our Abseil Platform (much to the worry of her family members – you should have seen their faces!!).
And Teresa does this twice a year AND without a safety rope (unlike our abseil platform).
