On Sunday 13 July, 50 brave people took on the Queen's Medical Centre's last ever 85ft abseil challenge raising money for children and young people with cancer, and their families.

The Queen's Medical Centre 85ft abseil is a great success

For the past seven years, every July, brave parents, family, friends and supporters have completed this challenge.

A local mum, Hayley Ruddy, who took part in the event, explained that she was fundraising for CLIC Sargent as a way of saying thank you for all the support she received for her son Joey.

Hayley, 24 said: "My CLIC Sargent Social Worker Tamsin is always there for me. Whether I am feeling doubtful, or the doctors are using big medical words that I don't understand, Tamsin is there to explain what's happening.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Anna Finnigan said: "The whole day was a great success and I would like to say thank you to all those involved, especially all the volunteers, who so kindly donated their time and hard work."
