Two daring employees from Chester-based ACF Car Finance Limited are celebrating after completing an abseil down a 250ft building for charity.
Nicole Davies, 23, and Jane Whittle, 25, braved the dizzy heights of the landmark Opal 3 building in Leeds, on Sunday 27th September, to help raise vital funds for BEN, the automotive industry charity.
The brave duo, who both work for the company’s Marketing Department on Chester Business Park have so far raised over £600 for BEN, which provides care and support to employees and their dependents in times of need.
Speaking about the abseil, Marketing Executive Nicole said: “I’m thrilled to have completed the abseil. It was a lot scarier than I’d imagined, as we were quite a distance from the building when we were abseiling down it.
“I’m delighted to have gone through with it though. I feel a great sense of achievement for taking part and raising money for such a good cause. Jane and I would like to thank all of our work colleagues, friends and family who have offered their support and donations so far and hope the donations will continue to come in so we can smash our original £500 target.”
BEN currently offers help, support, financial fundraising assistance and advice to over 15,000 people in their own homes every year. The Fund also provides a home to over 350 disabled and elderly people in one of four nursing and residential centres.
