Sponsored Abseil 24th April - how it went
Friday 24th April saw the first ever sponsored abseil down the front of the Wirral YMCA. Over 25 people took part, each taking turn to drop the 80ft from the very highest point to street level. Good weather made for an excellent spectacle which certainly turned heads skyward.
Those taking part included senior management of the YMCA, a Board member and several of the staff as well as volunteers and their friends.
The abseil took place to raise funds for the YMCA Youth Club and it was fascinating to see how Twitter and Facebook played a big part in promoting awareness.
Those wishing to donate to the cause can use charity checkout | YMCA Wirral or see Gordon Nicholas at the Vintage Radio AGM at the YMCA on Monday 27rh April at 2pm.
