Tracey (the mad woman) abseiled down the spinnaker tower at Portsmouth on April 30.  I did not!!!  She was accompanied by Natalie, a friend who flew down from Aberdeen for the event.

She is doing it to raise funds for the hospice that looked after Elsa who is the daughter of Tracey’s cousin.  Elsa died from SMA Type 1 at 9 months and the hospice provided fantastic support then and is continuing to support the family.  The hospice is in Rotherham.

The spinnaker is scary at 100 meters (350 feet in old money) see picture below.

In total approximately £2,200 was raised.
