Chris Sarson abseiled down the i360 to raise money for two local organisations; The Sea Serpents rugby team, to help pay for their tour in Canada; and The Ledward Centre, to buy equipment for the under 25s Clubhouse. Each will receive £1000
Talking about his experience Chris, who admits to not liking heights, said “it was petrifying because it was late at night, and you fall into nothingness”.
Chris was delighted to contribute to the Ledward Centre which he said: “will bring the community together under one roof”.
Duncan Lustig-Prean, the Centre Director, officially received the cheque last Saturday 8 on behalf of The Ledward Centre. Duncan was very excited and said, “It is very important. It all goes towards making James’ dream a reality”.
The Ledward Centre is now open with a pop-up café and exhibition in Jubilee Street, next to the Jubilee Library
