Take the plunge for local animals this New Year!

The Scottish SPCA is calling on daredevils to abseil down The Falkirk Wheel to raise vital funds.

Falkirk WheelWe have limited spaces available for the exciting challenge which takes place on Saturday 22 April 2017.

Superintendent Sharon Comrie said, “This is the first time we have organised an abseil at The Falkirk Wheel and spaces are going fast.

“It’s a fantastic challenge for anyone who wants to do something fun and memorable to help animals in their local area.

“Those who have completed abseils for the charity in previous years have said that it’s an amazing experience and one they’ll never forget.

“There will be a team of highly skilled instructors to ensure participants are equipped with everything they need.

“We rely on public support to continue our work rescuing abused, abandoned and injured animals so every penny and pound raised in sponsorship really does count.”

Cheryl McLoughlan from Hamilton who previously took part in the Titan Crane abseil said, “I was terrified on the day but excited too. I had never taken part in anything like it before.

“That moment I had to climb over the side of the crane to my descent was pretty scary, but as soon as I got going I was loving it!”

Anyone interested in taking part in the abseil can call our fundraising team on 03000 999 999 (option 4) or email fundraising@scottishspca.org for further information.
