Tredegar Hosts Charity Viaduct Challenge.
Source - WalesOnline

THIS is your chance to abseil more than 80ft from one of Tredegar’s oldest and most famous landmarks – the Nine Arches Viaduct.

The Hospice of the Valleys has arranged the abseil for October 26 – and anyone over the age of 12 is invited to take up the challenge.
The event will be run by fully licensed and qualified outdoor instructors from Tredegar’s Bryn Bach Park.
The entry fee is £10 and the Hospice is asking everyone who enters to raise at least £40 in sponsorship as well.
The hospice provides free high-quality care for cancer sufferers in Blaenau Gwent, as well as support for their families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – from the time of diagnosis through to cure or terminal care.
Hospice fundraiser Helen Morgan said: “This is a completely new event for the hospice and we hope there will be a lot of interest from local people in rising to the challenge of abseiling from such a historic landmark in Tredegar.”
For an entry form, just pop into any of the hospice’s charity shops in Tredegar, Ebbw Vale, Brynmawr and Abertillery, or to Bryn Bach Park in Tredegar.
For more information, call Helen on 01495 712936.
