Taking the plunge

FUND-RAISERS with a head for heights have been invited to try the highest abseil in the North East.

The Percy Hedley Foundation is calling on people to sign up to the April Fools Abseil off the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle.

The 200ft plunge will take place on Sunday, April 1, helping to raise funds for the charity’s work with disabled children, young people, adults and their families.
