A volunteer from Ipswich is hoping to conquer his fear of heights by taking on a charity abseil down Colchester’s town hall.

Hugh Fenton-Anwyll, who works at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as a volunteer manager, has signed up to take the 150ft plunge next month.

As part of his role, Hugh helps to run the charity’s Help at Home scheme.

“I love new challenges so I couldn’t turn the chance to abseil,” he said.

“I want to conquer my fears while raising money for EACH. Through my work I am lucky enough to witness first hand the difference that EACH makes in the lives of life-threatened children, young people and their families and how important these services are.”

Fundraisers are encouraged to join Hugh on his challenge and sign up for the Colchester abseil today.

Entry is £25 with a sponsorship target of £100.
