Do you fancy a challenge that is a little bit different and making a difference to a worthy local charity?

Then why not take part in the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity Halloween-themed 100ft abseil at the Sandman Hotel in Crawley on Saturday October 31 and scare yourself senseless with a thriller of a day.

Be your own ghastly ghost or wicked witch; join in the fun and be as creative as you like with your costume. The scarier the better.

Registration is open to anyone age 13 or over and costs £30 per person with a minimum sponsorship of £100 per person.

All you’ll need is a good sense of balance and the ability to control your nerves so don’t miss the opportunity to grab this spooktacular challenge. Places are limited so sign up today. Simply call 01403 780444 or email Catherine.bristow@dvlcc.org.uk

Plus for those on the ground watching the brave souls you can meet the spectacular Owls Out and About where you can hold some amazing species of owls, including an African Spotted Eagle Owl, European Eagle Owl and many more.

Catherine Bristow, Events Fundraiser commented :“As a charity the families we help rely on us so much and we want to continue to help them. Events like these which raise money means we can continue to do that. Children with cerebral palsy may have a range of physical and cognitive impairments which affect their lives, one in three are unable to walk, one in four are unable to talk and three in four experience pain as an example. The service we provide can be life changing and it is completely free of charge. The public have been great in supporting our events and I hope they can help us once again.”
