A Brean fundraiser who is afraid of heights is set to bravely take part in a cliff abseiling challenge for charity.

Garry Haines, who works at Brean’s Holiday Resort Unity, will be abseiling down Uphill’s 140ft quarry cliff face this Saturday (September 29th).

He told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “It all started when I was sat waiting for my daughter Kiera to come out of school. I heard Heart FM wanted people to sign up to its ‘Make Some Noise Over The Edge challenge’.”

“They wanted people who have never done abseiling before to challenge themselves and raise money for their charity which helps smaller charities across the south west, many of which are for children.”

“I been wanting to challenge myself this year after some recent family tragedies. Life is for living and trying new things.”

He adds: “I have always hated heights and have never done anything like this before.”

“Some days I am looking forward to it, and other days I think why on earth did I sign up for it! I must be mad, but it is for a good cause.”

“With any luck I may overcome my fear of heights. If not, it will just confirm why I hate heights.”

“If all goes well, who knows, I might do a sky dive for charity. We will see.”
