Andy BorahurstAndy Borahurst abseilUK: Andy Hall, a director of Surrey-based air conditioning contractor Borahurst, abseiled down Portsmouth’s iconic Spinnaker last weekend to raise money for charity.

With so many rooftop air conditioning plant rooms, a head for heights would have been a distinct advantage for Andy in tackling the 100m drop – a distance that’s twice the height of Nelson’s Column.

Spinnaker Tower is the 170m landmark tower in Portsmouth, opened in 2005 as the centrepiece of the redevelopment of Portsmouth Harbour,

The abseiling event was organised by and for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

Andy, who had never abseiled before, hopes to raise £1,500 fro the charity. If you would like to contribute visit Andy’s Just Giving page here.
