Doris Long Abseils From The Spinnaker Tower For The Rowans

Doris Long will abseil from Portsmouth’s iconic Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth on 12th and 13th July 2015 and will aim to be the holder of the Guinness World Record for the World’s oldest abseiler.

Doris Long will be 101 on the date of the abseil and will be watched and supported by hundreds of onlookers.

The Rowans Hospice is calling for all dare devils to come and take part in this exceptionally adventurous fundraiser to help raise money and awareness, stating that if Doris can do it, anybody can.

Registration costs £50 and there are only 40 spaces on each day for people to take part. Doris and The Rowans Hospice invite you all to go along and watch the record attempt.

To find out more about this event and others see the Rowans Website or follow them on Facebook.
