Two extremely brave ladies, from The Royal British Legion Women’s Section Military Wives and Girlfriend’s Group, will be taking part in a sponsored abseil of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth to raise funds for the Women’s Section.Spinnaker Tower

The Spinnaker Tower is 170 meters above sea level and is the tallest accessible structure in the UK outside of London. It is possible, for those who dare, to abseil from a 100 meter high platform, and marvel at the breathtaking views of Portsmouth Harbour and beyond.

The two young thrill seekers doing the sponsored abseil next year are, Michelle Thomas and Charlotte Arkless. Michelle’s abseil will take place at 3pm on the 3rd May 2014, and Charlotte’s at 2pm on the 23rd August 2014.

All money raised will directly benefit Armed Forces families in need.
