A team from Kimpton have just completed the Anfield Abseil to raise over £650 for Cash for Kids. Cash for Kids is a grant-giving charity that helps the children that need it most across the UK. Their mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in our communities who are affected by poverty, illness, neglect or have additional needs.
The Anfield Abseil only started in Spring 2023 and sees participants climb to the top of the Main Stand roof, one of the largest all-seater single stands in European football, before starting their 100ft descent down the side of the stadium.
As well as being able to take in some city views, they also abseil past the Club’s huge official crest, before landing back, safely on terra firma.
The Kimpton team shown below included from left to right, Keith Watts, Grace Roberts, Callum Morgan, Harvey Swanick and Megan Swanick.
Speaking about the event, Megan Swanick said “the whole experience was very rewarding, but to be honest it was more scary than the parachute jump we did last year and definitely more scary than the Lego Walk of Pain. Going over the edge at the top of the main stand and making the mistake of looking down, did make you feel very much on your own. So I was glad to complete it and even more delighted to have raised the money for a great charity.
Putting yourself deliberately outside your comfort zone is something we should all do every so often and if you can combine it with a good cause, that feels like a win, win.”
