Castle abseil raises £4k


Adventurous fundraisers helped raise more than £4,000 for Sedgley-based Beacon Centre for the Blind, by abseiling down Dudley Castle!

More than 25 participants took a leap of faith for the charity and descended down the 70-foot tower in the heart of the zoological gardens on September 28.

DZG Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “We’re delighted the day was such a success and so much money was raised to help support people across the Midlands living with sight loss.”

Beacon Centre for the Blind Fundraising and Events Officer, Kelly Vickers, said: “We’re always looking for fun and different ways to raise money for the charity and this challenge was hugely successful.”
