Throw the Webmaster off the Nine Arches !
OK, now make an orderly queue please

I'm going to participate in the annual Abseil of then Nine Arches to be held on the 4th October 2009. All monies raised will be going to the Hospice of the valley who do some amazing great work for people and their family's has been given a diagnosis that is either cancer or another life threatening condition. The Hospice are located in Morgan street in Tredegar.

Please, if you can, click on the "Just Giving" icon found on the right of the screen to donate any money (no matter how small), to help the Hospice continue their great work.

Abseilers Take Plunge For Valleys Hospice
Source - South Wales Argus

AROUND 50 brave Gwent residents took on a 60ft abseiling challenge at the weekend to raise money for the Heads of the Valleys Hospice.

Adults and children ranging from 11 to 60 years old abseiled down the Nine Arches Viaduct in Tredegar.
The total amount raised has not yet been confirmed but it is hoped a target of at least £2,000 will be reached.
All the money raised will go towards the hospice which provides free, high quality care for people suffering from cancer in Blaenau Gwent as well as support for their families.
Amongst those taking part in the challenge were Blaenau Gwent’s Executive Member for Leisure, Cllr Jason Owen, Director of Leisure Services, Lynn Phillips and Tourism Officer Alyson Tippings.
Fundraiser for Hospice of the Valleys, Helen Morgan said: “The atmosphere on the day was great and everyone who took on the challenge completed it. We will definitely be doing the abseil event next year but possibly making it a bit more challenging.

Nice one mate. We went along earlier to watch the brave ones! We were supposed to go back at 2pm to see a mate go off but we were late getting dinner so didn't make it :(

Hi Sam,

Sorry, just seen your message. I went at 2:00 this afternoon......

A MASSIVE thanks to all that donated to the event.
In total, raised £405.18 to go to help the Hospice of the Valley.

And for the abseil itself - well easy with my army training ;-)

Thanks all, and I mean that.......
