Cllr. Tina Combellack, Mayor of Rushcliffe has completed a thrilling 40-feet abseil down Kings Mill Viaduct to raise money for her chosen charities.
This is what she had to say: “On May 14th I completed an abseil for my Mayoral charities the Nottingham to Grantham Canal Water Restoration Group and the Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance.
I am hoping to raise sufficient for at least 2 Air Ambulance flights which cost £4000 each just to fly, not to mention the medical interventions and blood transfusions which can be given in flight. I would also like to continue to help with the maintenance of the water in the Nottingham to Grantham Canal for its environmental and Physical & Mental health benefits. Neither of these organisations receive Government funding and are solely reliant upon donations. So if you can help, it would be much appreciated”.
