Johnny Bugeja

The Gibraltar Branch of Cancer Research UK will be holding a charity abseil fundraising event on Saturday, August 31 at Europort Building 6.

The event will be raising funds for Cancer Research UK.

This is the second year the charity organises an abseil to raise funds and has thanked the volunteers from the Gibraltar Fire and Rescue Service assisted by the Airport Fire and Rescue Service for giving up their free time to conduct and assist with the abseil.

Last year’s event raised £13,000 for the charity with 46 people taking on the challenge.

Those wanting to take part can register online via the following link: https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/get-involved/find-an-event/gibraltar-abseil-2019

Participants need to be 18 years or over, pay a £20 registration fee and fundraise a minimum of £200.

The organisers encourage people to come down on Saturday and support all the abseil participants and volunteers as from 9am on August 31.
