Abseil down the iconic Forth Rail Bridge for animals in Scotland

The Scottish SPCA is calling on daredevils and those who want a challenge to raise money for animals in need.

FRBWe are looking for volunteers to abseil down one of the country’s most iconic landmarks, the Forth Rail Bridge.

Manager of our Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Edinburgh said, “We’re calling on animal lovers and adrenaline junkies alike to take part in this once in a lifetime challenge.

“With only five places left, it’s a fantastic opportunity to do something fun and memorable and to raise vital funds to rehabilitate, rehome and release animals in Scotland.

“At the event, there will be a team of highly skilled instructors to ensure participants are equipped with everything they need to make the abseil as safe and enjoyable as possible.

“Those who have taken part in abseils for us in previous years have said that it’s an amazing experience and one they’ll never forget.”

Fundraiser John Murasev has completed the abseil three times for the charity.

John said, “The reason I took part in the Forth Rail Bridge Abseil was because I saw this as the perfect opportunity to raise much needed funds and raise awareness of the work the Scottish SPCA does.

“This was an incredible challenge and I loved the adrenaline rush so I decided to do it twice more since.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to see one of Scotland’s most iconic man-made features and I would urge anyone to take part.  It’s very safe and the staff are brilliant.”

The Forth Rail Abseil will take place on Sunday 9 June.
