Glow New Media raised over £500 in a sponsored abseil down the the Mersey Tunnel Ventilation Shaft on Saturday.
the Mersey Tunnel Ventilation Shaft on Saturday.
The building is the biggest thing on the Wirral skyline and makes for a commanding view of the river but at 20 stories high, the roof is enough to give even a seasoned climber vertigo.
Phil and Thom (neither of whom are good with heights!) managed to complete the abseil without too much fuss.
The event was organised by Addaction - the charity responsible for helping people recover from serious drug and alcohol abuse.
Thom Shannon, Director of Glow New Media said:
I won't be doing it again in a hurry, but I'm glad we've raised so much, I think it'll make a real difference to people who need it – thank you to everyone who sponsored us.
Nicholas Evans, Project Manager at Addaction said:
The team at Youngaddaction Liverpool were so impressed by the generosity of the guys from Glow New Media. Thank you for your bravery and impressive abseiling skills. The money you raised will go towards helping young people break out of the destructive cycle of drugs and give them new hope.
