A team of High climbers!
A big thank you to The Rotaract Club of Northampton who organised an abseil down the Northampton Lift Tower on the Saturday 20th July 2019.
It was scheduled for a 1.00pm start but because of the strength of the winds the 8 (Sorry correct that, 9 ! ) courageous abseilees had to complete the challenge in the INSIDE of the tower!
Mary Chapman & Becks Johnson agreed to do this on behalf of Different Strokes and were joined by our own Rod Packer, himself a stroke survivor and a regular at our weekly meetings.
Beck's, Mary's and Rod's sponsorship money raised was split 70% to the Northampton Group and 30% to Head Office, while the money raised by the Rotaract team went to Different Strokes head office.
Our thanks and admiration go to,
not only the 3 brave friends of
Different Strokes Northampton
who took on this challenge and
have raised so much money for
us, but to the 6 Rotaract
members who joined in this, one
of the most successful
fundraising events of the year.
