Four daring staff members from a Linlithgow very sheltered housing development have taken a huge leap to raise a whopping £1200 for charity.

Kashmir Potter, Gillian Scott, Helen Dunn and James Hill from Bield’s Brae Court very sheltered housing development completed the 165-feet abseil down Scotland’s iconic Forth Rail Bridge to cap off a prosperous year of fundraising for Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS).

Rena Kirton-Vaughan, Manager at Brae Court, said: “I am so proud of the team for raising such a fantastic amount of money for a great charity.

Several of Brae Court’s tenants made the trip to the Firth of Forth to show their support for the development’s team in their daring task.

Helen said: “All of the tenants have been absolutely lovely and it certainly made a difference having a few friendly faces there on the day to encourage us on.”

Claire Pomphrey, Fundraising Manager at CHSS said “We were delighted to have the Bield team take part in the abseil. We thank them all and their supporters for raising such a fantastic amount.”
