See Liverpool like you’ve never seen it before
We all know just how brilliant our city is. Well, you now have the opportunity to see it just like the Liver Birds do – from 100m high in the sky!
Abseil down the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and support local charity, Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. At over 331ft high, the cathedral is the third tallest structure in Liverpool and fifth largest cathedral in the world.
What’s more, for a limited time only, the charity is offering 2 places for the price of 1 so you don’t need to take on this challenge solo. You can take along your partner, a mate or even challenge your boss. After all, it’s for such a good cause, they can’t really say no!
The abseil is taking place on Saturday 17th August 11am – 12.30pm.
Who you’re helping
Lung cancer is a disease that can affect anyone and one that takes the lives of over 36,000 people every year. It kills more people than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancer combined, and Liverpool is one of the worst affected places in the UK. The number of people diagnosed with lung cancer in our city is 45% higher than the national average.
Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only lung cancer charity dedicated to supporting everyone affected by lung cancer. It also funds vital research into early detection – some of the most promising projects are happening right here in the University of Liverpool – because if lung cancer is caught early, people can have curative treatment.
