‘Cap­tain’ Louise in 230ft ab­seil chal­lenge

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A BAR man­ager will turn su­per­hero to ab­seil down the side of a block of flats for char­ity.

Louise An­der­son, man­ager of No 4 Park Green, will scale the dizzy heights of one of Manch­ester’s tallest build­ings to raise funds for the Royal Manch­ester Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Humphrey’s He­roes ini­tia­tive.

Louise, 28, from Chapel Street, will join five other Hy­des Brew­ery staff and 90 oth­ers for the chal­lenge, which be­gins 72 me­tres (236ft) up stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion build­ing Lib­erty Heights.

The keen snow­boarder will go as Cap­tain Amer­ica. She said: “I’m not scared of heights, that I know any­way. My cus­tomers think I’m mad but it’s a great cause. I’ve climbed a tree but never ab­seiled.”

Han­nah Thomas, RMCH events man­ager, said: “Our pa­tients are real su­per­heroes so we’re de­lighted Louise and the Hy­des team will don their capes and scale Lib­erty Heights to make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of some of the re­gion’s poor­li­est chil­dren. Manch­ester’s tallest ab­seil isn’t for the faint hearted! We hope Louise’s spon­sors will dig deep.”

The ab­seil is on Sun­day, April 24. Do­nate at just­giv­ing.com/louise­an­der­son-7.
