How to Raise Cash And Have a Good Time?

If walking down the outside of a building 350 ft up is your idea of fun - this could be just the thing for you? Abseil for charity!

LSI has such a diverse group of talented and generous people. Many are also regularly doing charitable activities for good causes.  The latest madness on the horizon is from Hannah and Angela (Hannah Youell and Angela Evans are both in the Marketing department - click here to meet them).

We caught up with Angela who told us a little more;

"Hannah and I decided to take on this challenge after we were approached by Shannon Walsh from the Stroke Association who was looking for local volunteers to do the abseil to help fundraise. We both have people in our lives that have been affected by stroke and thought that this would be an excellent opportunity to take on a challenge whilst raising money for an extremely worthwhile charity. Every year around 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke and the Stroke Association offers emotional, practical and financial support to those affected.

We’re really looking forward to the abseil on 23rd March (Hannah’s birthday!) and really appreciate all the support we’re receiving!"
