ABSEIL down Spinnaker Tower and raise money and awareness of a stroke charity.

The Stroke Association is looking for adrenaline-seekers willing to take part in the abseil down the tower at Gunwharf Quays.

Shannon Walsh, from the Stroke Association, said: ‘One in six of us will have a stroke and it is the UK’s largest cause of severe adult disability.

‘We’re for life after stroke. That’s why we support thousands of people affected by stroke across Hampshire and the rest of the UK to make their best recovery.’

Registration costs £25 and the charity asks people to raise a minimum of £350 in donations.
