Top of the summit

Getting to the top of the summit was the hardest part of our latest fundraising effort as it was all downhill from there!

In the latest event to raise money for our charity of the year, the Great North Air Ambulance Service, staff, parents, friends and family from High Bank Day Nursery abseiled from one of the cliffs at Goldsborough Carr in Teesdale, County Durham.

Despite a few, understandable, pre-abseil nerves, everyone successfully managed to rappel down, raising over £250 (and still counting) for Great North Ambulance in the process.

This takes the total raised this year to around £1,500, with more events planned before the end of 2018.

High Bank Day Nursery Manager Hayley Grainger said: “When we got to the top and looked down there were a few gasps, but everyone did so well.

“The abseil was organised and led by one of our parents, James Ryan, and we would like to thank him and al the parents and staff who took part.

“Now we have the bug, James is going to arrange for us to abseil down an even bigger cliff.

“It’s been a very active fundraising year so far and we are not finished yet!”
