Our Chairman will abseil in support of two charities

Cllr Christine Ward, New Forest District Council's Chairman, will be abseiling Emirates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth on Sunday 27 August 2017 in support of her two local charities (First Opportunities, and It's Your Choice) .

When asked why she chose to do the daredevil descent, Cllr Ward said, "Doing this is scary, but it's not as scary as the place that some of our young people find themselves in.  I'm really passionate about my two charities, especially when it comes to young people, and mental health issues."

The 100 metre descent takes an average of 10 minutes.

Later in the year, Cllr Ward will also be doing a skydive for charity. 

Anyone wishing to support Cllr Ward's fundraising, please contact Donna Langfield, NFDC Chairman's PA on 023 8028 5588, email  or at
