On Friday 21st June, Business Development & Marketing Manager, Stephanie Prior, will be abseiling from the British Airways i360 in aid of the Rockinghorse charity.
This is the first-ever sunset drop which is to take place on the longest day of the year. Stephanie will be lowered from the i360 pod, which is 450ft high, as the sun sets for the evening.
This fundraiser is in aid of the Chalkhill Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit in Haywards Heath, the only mental health inpatient unit for young people in Sussex.
“I am extremely excited (and slightly terrified) to be taking part! It’s a great opportunity for me to set a personal challenge to complete while raising money for such a worthy and current cause.
“Mental health increasingly affects many individuals and families. I am aware that there is more to be done in terms of education, medication, research and funding in order to provide adequate support for those in need. It’s an honour to support this cause.
“I am very grateful to everyone who has supported me so far through donations and for the support from my employer and sponsor Healys LLP.”
2018 saw the first-ever British Airways i360 iDrop take place in April, which included local celebrity and IBO super-middleweight boxer Chris Eubank Jnr take on this challenge.
