Liverpool Cathedral sparkled in the sunshine recently as a group of heroes took on a great challenge to abseil down the 331 feet to raise funds for Rainbow Hub.
The brave participants raised over £3,800 and included a team from the charity’s long term supporters, JMW Solicitors LLP.
Amongst the parents of children who use the services at Rainbow Hub were James Crosby from Heskin, who took part in celebration of son Finlay’s 4th birthday, and Helen Blakely from Chorley.
Mother and daughter duo, Macaila Hannaford and Caitlin Restall from Bury even managed to sing-a-long with “Mr Brightside” by The Killers as they made the descent. The song is very significant to them and close to their hearts as it was a favourite of their husband/dad who has passed away. Caitlin has a tattoo on her leg with it and they said they felt he was with them in spirit.
Lyndsay Fahey, CEO, Rainbow Hub, said “Our sincere thanks go to them all for taking part and helping get our fundraising events truly back on track. We hope that there will be many more fantastic challenges over the coming months and that people will use the opportunity to raise the much needed funds for us. Every penny means so much.”
