Have your say

IF you’ve ever fancied jumping off the top of Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower, now’s your chance.

Stroke Association has set up a weekend for people to climb down the tower in an event called The Spinnaker Shocks Abseil.

The Stroke Association is a national charity which does research into preventing people getting strokes and the best way to treat people who suffer them.

People who take part in the event can be guaranteed stunning views of the Solent as they make their way down the 350ft tower.

The abseil takes place on June 8 and 9.

Participants need to give a £25 registration fee and raise at least £350 through donations.
