Call to join in charity abseil
West Lothian’s daredevils are being invited to take on an abseil from one of Scotland’s best-loved landmarks.
A team of fearless fundraisers will take a leap from the top of the iconic Forth Rail Bridge.
But time is running out to sign up for the once- ina-lifetime challenge which is set to raise thousands to train life-changing assistance dogs. Charity Canine Partners is calling for people to sign up for the epic SAS-style freefall abseil from the 127-year-old UNESCO World Heritage Site structure. It costs £20 to take part and participants are asked to raise a minimum of £200 through sponsorship.
Any money raised will help the charity continue training its dogs which are taught to carry out a range of tasks including picking up dropped items, loading and unloading washing machines, dressing and undressing a person and fetching help in an emergency. The abseil was organised by health charity, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland in a bid to raise money and awareness for charity.
