Well, we did it and we enjoyed it so much, we went down three times each.
Thank you to everyone who supported us, from donors, to the team members and their families.
A huge thanks to Mark Fox, our anchorman on the day and the voice of calm to those of us less confident. Brilliant job Mark.Thank you to Jaz Bagdi, who's smile never left his face. whether he was on the rope, or solid ground.
Thank you to Zuleika, not least for overcoming your fears (three times). What next for you?
Thank you to our friends and families for supporting us on the day. Lyn, James, Stuart, Kira, Dee, Jo, Matt, Leeanne, our chairman of trustees, Bob and last, but by no means least Rokai, 5 in August and Matthew, 6 next February, both of whom descended three times each.
