Take The Plunge For The Anthony Nolan Trust January 28, 2009

Posted by liverpoolchamber in Business.

anthony-nolan-trust-logoLifesaving leukaemia charity, The Anthony Nolan Trust is looking for brave souls to abseil 101ft down the side of Leasowe Lighthouse in Wirral. The abseil will take place on Sunday 29th March.

The 245 year old Leasowe Lighthouse is a stunning historic monument and a well known Wirral landmark. Enjoy the breathtaking views from the top, before braving the 101ft descent to the bottom.

Ruth Carter, Regional Fundraising Manager for the Charity said, “Taking part in local events is a great way to support the charity.  This is a fantastic venue for an abseil, promising an adrenaline rush that will really test your nerves! Why not challenge your work colleagues and customers to race you down!”.

Abseiling is open to all ages and no previous experience is required as all training is given by a professional team. All abseilers will need to register before the event and will be asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £100.

The Anthony Nolan Trust takes back lives from leukaemia by managing the world’s most successful bone marrow register.

After three years of searching we have finally found a suitable match for Southport school children Ella and Sam Wright. Both have a rare immune deficiency which leaves them open to infection. A bone marrow transplant is their only cure. Thousands of Merseysiders have responded to our appeals to join our register over the past few years and we are sure they would like to support us in our fundraising.

The Anthony Nolan Trust is an independent charity and relies on financial support from individuals and companies to fund its work. It costs the charity £125 to tissue-type each new donor to its register.

For an abseil entry form text “FUN Leasowe” and your name and address to 60003, email your details to ruth.carter@anthonynolan.org.uk or visit the Anthony Nolan website.
