‘Captain’ Louise in 230ft abseil challenge
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.
