Going Over the Edge – Abseiling Fundraiser


The thought of going over the edge of Britain’s tallest lift tower standing at 400ft, on the 1st August 2015, won’t stop Sally-Ann who is determined to abseil down the structure in St. James’ square, Northampton in aid of EVE (formerly known as Nene Valley Christian Family Refuge).

Eve exists to help women and families caught up in domestic violence and abuse. Domestic abuse is still an issue in 21st Century Britain, and we are here to help. From raising awareness of domestic abuse and how to spot it, to running a women’s and family refuge in Northamptonshire or training professionals to work with victims and survivors, we are a multifaceted organisation determined to make a difference in the lives of thousands of women.

Sally-Ann, hopes that in taking on this challenge, with the support of her colleagues, friends and family, she will gain the sense of achievement that comes with doing something new and this great. More importantly, she hopes to raise valuable funds for the life changing work at Eve.

Another one of the participants, Stefanie, said, “I am participating as I think it will raise much needed money for a very worthy local cause, I don’t believe we can do enough to help a charity like yours. I bumped into your CEO at a networking breakfast a few weeks ago where she mentioned the event and I was inspired to sign up and take part.”

“For me this will be an exhilarating experience something my family will enjoy supporting me do. I am aiming to achieve £500 in sponsorship and will load my online giving site in the next couple of days.”
