Scaling new heights for charity

At JMW we are never afraid of a charity challenge as you may have recently seen when several of our partners were covered in freezing cold ice and water in aid of Macmillan.

So, when an opportunity arose to take part in an abseil in aid of Henshaws Society for Blind People, one of the Clinical Negligence department’s sponsored charities, we took it one step further by agreeing to do it blindfolded.

Two brave members of our team, solicitor Ciaran Harper and paralegal Rheanne Laybourn, kindly volunteered for the challenge and have raised £310 for this worthy cause. You can see from the pictures below that this was no mean feat but luckily both clearly have a head for heights as they survived the 60m drop from the Bell Tower at the Trafford Centre in Manchester unscathed.

We would like to thank Henshaws for supplying the blindfolds and for everyone who has supported Ciaran and Rheanne’s efforts by providing sponsorship. The money raised will help to make a difference to the lives of blind and visually impaired people across Manchester and beyond by enhancing the vital services that Henshaws provides

If you would like to donate but have not as yet there is still time and you can do so via our Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/JMWBlindfoldedabseil/.
