Beresfords take the plunge in charity abseil!

19 June 2014
In an act of charitable bravery, 16 of Beresfords team from Colchester, Great Dunmow, Chelmsford and Brentwood branches and Head Office took part in a charity abseil of 100ft from the roof of Colchester town hall.

At an average speed of ten hair-raising feet per minute, each member of the Beresfords team walked down the side of the town hall, in aid of EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices).
However, the fear and anxiety was well worth it, because the event is on track to raise at least £5,000 for EACH, who help children and young people with life-threatening conditions and provide support to their families. At Beresfords alone the team raised well in excess of £1,250. Last year EACH helped 572 families in Essex and the neighbouring counties. They provided 24 hour telephone support, various forms of therapy, day care, overnight breaks in the hospice, specialist play and spiritual care.

This year’s event was so successful that another charity abseil is being organised for Sunday 13th July at the Town Hall, Colchester. If you are feeling brave enough you can sign up here.
