After a couple of months of fear, on Saturday 8th July the Redwood Team completed the abseil of the Spinnaker Tower raising funds for Rowans Hospice!

The team was spoilt with a beautiful sunny day and importantly very little breeze! The view of Portsmouth and the whole of the surrounding area was breathtaking.

There were some nerves as the team ascended the tower and hopped over a small ledge to put faith in what seems like a very thin rope! However, all of the team survived the 100 metre descent to arrive safely at the bottom of the tower.

We are delighted to report that the team smashed the £800 fundraising target; currently donations received are £1,228 however new donations are arriving all of the time!

Thank you to everyone who very kindly sponsored the team, if you have not done so and would like to donate, it is not too late. We would be delighted to except any sponsorship on your behalf at:

As you can see from the pictures the team really enjoyed the day. Thank you to Rowans Hospice for allowing the opportunity and for all of the very patient staff at Spinnaker Tower who assisted with keeping the team safe!

Finally, thank you again for everyone’s support not only with sponsorships but also those who gave up their Saturday afternoon to cheer the team on!

Planning has already started for next year’s challenge!
