Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland

Scaling new heights


We’re about to go over the top of one of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks. And we’ll be viewing it from another perspective as we abseil down it for charity. That’s if our band of volunteers haven’t got their eyes shut tight in fright as they make the breathtaking descent.

It’s all for a good cause – we’re abseiling to raise money for a great charity – Chest Heart & Stoke Scotland. And we love a challenge.

Turning themselves into Lara Croft for the day will be our go-getter, all girls charity abseiling team. They are Nicola, Leanne, Alannah, Ruth and Lauren. The guys at Cornhill Castle are getting put to shame here – but they will be taking part in the next one!

This charity is particularly close to our hearts at Cornhill Castle. Nicola, who is taking part in the abseil, suffered a stoke six years ago, when she was only 34. We’re doing this to show our support for Nicola and to raise funds and awareness for a great charity.

Nicola said “Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland provided me with much needed support and advice back in 2011 when my sons were only 8 and 11 and I needed to help them understand what was happening to me after my stroke. All the work they do is invaluable to people going through it and their families”

We are looking to raise £1,000 from our charity abseil. Any donations are most gratefully received. Donations can be made through our Just Giving page – https://frbmay2017.everydayhero.com/uk/we-re-high-as-a-kite

The date of the abseil is Sunday May 21st, at the Forth Rail Bridge. We will keep you updated on our progress!

We also donate 10% of our tips to Chest, Heart & Stoke Scotland. So far we have raised £831.60 between fundraising and donations.

A charity which works to raise awareness of good health and the problems of heart disease. And these are not just conditions for concern as you get older. Younger people have suffered debilitating strokes, as experienced by one of our Manorview team.

She credits this charity as being a huge help to her, and we’re delighted to show support for this organisation and for our colleague.
