Spinnaker Tower Abseil - Earl Mountbatten Hospice

On 27th August 2012, My Guide Isle of Wight's Rebecca abseiled 300ft down The Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth! Along with 42 other brave abseilers, she put her trust in her rope and harness as she stepped off the platform.

The abseil was in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice - a very worthy, local cause. Ben from the hospice organised the event - thank you Ben!

Rebecca is not an 'adrenaline junkie' usually, but found the experience exhilerating (although scary!!!) She wanted to support the local charity at the same time as challenging herself. If you would like to sponsor Rebecca, go to her Just Giving page here justgiving.com/Rebecca-Mobsby/

Check out the video below. If you would like to take part in something yourself for the hospice, how about Walk the Wight next May?
