Have your say

A HAMPSHIRE charity has six spaces available for daredevils to abseil down Spinnaker Tower.

Parity, which provides services for people with multiple disabilities in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire, is asking participants to descend the tower in Gunwharf Quays.

No previous experience is required, and all guidance and equipment is provided on the day by abseil specialists.

People need to pay a £25 deposit.

After that they are asked to £175 in sponsorship, which will go to the charity and help fund services.

The event takes place on Saturday, June 22.

To book a place, contact Kimberley Norris on 01252 375581 or email kimberley@parityfordisability.org.uk.
