Jumping at the chance!

Abseiling group

When Caroline Jack-Mortimer heard that there was a chance to abseil off the Forth Rail Bridge she jumped at the chance!

After finding out that her local reverend was abseiling off the iconic bridge to raise money for CrossReach, Caroline "immediately said yes!"

"At this point though I didn't have lots of knowledge of CrossReach but I did my research and was blown away by what everyone at CrossReach does. I love reading the magazine and reading all the success stories and everything that they do. I was only too happy to do the abseil for such an amazing organisation. 


"The day of our abseil was amazing from start to finish.  It was a glorious day and the atmosphere was electric. Once our abseil was complete the day was rounded off by a thank you goody bag.  Inside was a mug and a personalised heart thanking us for our help.  Like, things touch your heart in life and my experience with CrossReach has done just that."

After successfully completing the abseil Caroline signed up to do it again the following year too!
