‘It was quite daunting stepping over the edge, but with the professional and helpful training from the staff, and some practice, it was surprisingly easy to negotiate the long descent. Once underway it was lovely to look out at the fantastic views of the Solent, Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and surrounding area. It was also fantastic to hear the cheers of some of the ‘Brendoncare Bridgade’ who had come to support us all. Many thanks to Brendoncare for giving me the opportunity to do this’
Sally, abseil participant
‘I really enjoyed the spinnaker tower abseiling event with Brendoncare! The fundraising team’s excellent organisation and positive energy made it much easier for me to launch myself off of the edge of the building!’
Neil, abseil participant
‘What an experience: really scary at first but then actually enjoyable and I would happily do it again. The guys who prepared us in the harness etc. gave very clear instructions on the actual abseil were great: fun but confidence-inspiring. Couldn't have been better!’
Anne, abseil participant
