Come and see!

Everyone is invited to come and watch the event for free, and help Dan raise money for young lives against cancer. If you'd like to sponsor Dan, visit his official JustGiving page.

Dan said: "I'm very excited about the stunt but as it draws nearer, the nerves are definitely starting to kick in. It is a seriously high point to be dangled from for all to see but it will be worth it to raise money for CLIC Sargent, who are the real inspiration behind this event. 

“The charity is very close to my heart after losing my best friend at the age of 21 to a short fight with cancer and I'll be doing the escape in his memory. It will be nice to give something back and help a new family after the great support CLIC Sargent provided for my friend and his loved ones."

Thank you Dan

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Liz Blunt said: “When cancer strikes young lives we fight tirelessly to limit the damage it causes beyond their health. We rely entirely on donations to fund our vital work and so we can’t thank Dan enough for his fantastic efforts. 

“Thanks to Dan and his truly unique fundraising event, we will be able to help even more young people in the south of England get all the practical, financial and emotional support they need. Receiving local support like this is really is like magic to us and our young people.”
