14-09-10 Dare To Dangle
Abseiling for charity from the FINNESTON CRANE.
Congratulations to Steve Partridge and Tom Lee (Carradale Firefighters) doing their bit for the FIREFIGHTERS CHARITY,also Catriona and Lee Connelly doing their part forERSKINE HOSPITAL.
Catriona sent me this info and photos from the abseil of the weekend 11/12th Sept.
Everyone at Erskine is overjoyed with the tremendous support the Dare to Dangle event received this weekend. Around 160 brave fundraisers, including Erskine supporter John Smeaton, put their nerves to the test to overcome the dizzy heights of the Finnieston Crane and help raise nearly £30,000 for both Erskine and The Fire Fighters Charity. We are also extremely grateful to Tom Lee and Steve Partridge who travelled from Carradale to take part in the event, and raised a fabulous amount of money, and a large thank you to everyone in Carradale for supporting them. The vital funds raised at this event will ensure that the veterans’ charity Erskine can continue to provide the highest standard of care to veterans, young and old, across Scotland.
Hopefully we will be doing something bigger and better next year, although there is no way in this world Cartriona will be taking part next time!
Thanks Johnny, hope to see you all again soon.
