Aiming to reach a target of £10,000, 20 brave individuals took part in the 150ft drop, including Lisa Rudge, Billie Dickens, Joe Vanlint and Claire Hollins from the ADHD foundation, Jayne Moore Media who look after the PR and the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Malcolm Kennedy- who was also fundraising for his other chosen charities – The Owen McVeigh Foundation, The Choir with No Name and All Together NOW.
Pushing himself to the edge, Cllr Kennedy, said:
“ADHD Foundation is one of my chosen charities and they do great work locally and nationally in raising awareness and combating the stigma attached to ADHD and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
“This was by far my biggest challenge, and stepping over the edge was no easy feat… in spite of the incredible views of the city from the top! It was an honour to be able to this for my chosen charities, and I must give a huge thanks to all those who lent their support by sponsoring and those involved in organising this fantastic event.”
Dr. Tony Lloyd, chief executive of ADHD Foundation, commented:
“We are celebrating our tenth anniversary this year as a charity, and we wouldn’t be in this position without the hard work of our team and the unwavering support from the public and people like cllr Kennedy. To see them taking on the abseil challenge for the foundation makes me very proud and I can’t thank them all enough. It was such an inspiring day and it was amazing to see people coming together to help us make a difference.”
