Abseil challenge for Melbourn girl
A MELBOURN girl is ready to scale the heights for a cause close to her heart.
Lucy Leach, 11, is to abseil down the 80ft high Cambridge Guildhall next weekend in memory of her Grandmother who died of cancer last year.
On the day of the abseil, Lucy would have passed her twelfth birthday - the minimum age requirement for an abseil - by just a week, but she isn’t nervous about the challenge.
“I went and looked at the Guildhall last week and wished it was higher,” she said.
“I haven’t been abseiling for long but I can’t wait for this and want to raise as much money as possible for my nan.”
