Dare You Go ‘Over the Top’ to Raise Funds for Your Local NHS

Hospitals?

Are you looking for a challenge in 2021? Why not do something outside your comfort zone
and take part in the Northamptonshire Health Charity abseil day. Following its
postponement last year, the charity’s annual abseil event is due to return on Saturday 3 rd
July.
Dare you go ‘over the top’ and abseil the 418ft (127m) iconic Northampton Lift Tower to raise
funds in aid of the NHS team closest to your heart? The charity supports Northampton
General as well as all the community and mental health hospitals and services across the
county under Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust. In 2019, the event raised a
fantastic £15,000 to support a wide-range of wards and departments. Register your place
and help them beat that this year!
Demonstrating that age is no barrier, hospital volunteer Brian Hayes was 82 when he took
on the challenge for the second time in 2019, supporting Breast Care Services. The
charity’s youngest daredevil Lucy Noel, 13 at the time, gave her sponsor money to Oncology
and Gosset Ward at Northampton General, while 15-year-old Thomas Cole abseiled for the
Palliative Care team, where his mum works.
You can choose to support the ward, department or service closest to your heart or raise
funds that will benefit projects and initiatives across both NHS Trusts. It is always a really
fantastic day with a true team spirit. Could this be the challenge for you in 2021? Contact
the charity team to register your place today!
