Lynda’s Abseil for Wildlife

We would just like to say an enormous thank you to Lynda Hickling, ex trustee, stirling member of her local group and volunteer, who braved her fear of heights in order to raise money for passion, wildlife. Well done Lynda – we salute your bravery and welcome the much needed funds to support this great work

I finally completed my abseil challenge on Sunday 14th June. I was a little nervous by the time I reached the top of the central tower in Pembroke Castle, but the instructors were very calm and reassuring, making sure it was fun for all concerned. I must admit that half-way down I wondered whether I was doing the right thing, but by that time it was too late and I just continued to the ground.

I feel I have achieved something which I might never have done if it hadn’t been for the opportunity to raise money for the Wildlife Trust. Once I’ve collected all the promised sponsorship, we should have just surpassed the £1,000 target which will be divided between the Meadows and Seabirds appeals. I’d like to thank all those who have given a donation and particularly those who also came along to give me moral support on the day!
