SU sabbatical officers Phil Bell and Jodie Delbridge will be
joined by 11 other
Between them the students have already raised over £1,000 in sponsorship pledges.
“To put what we’re doing into perspective,
“If this wasn't for a good cause I wouldn’t be doing it as it will be no easy task!"
Jodie Delbridge, Vice President (Education and Welfare) at the university Students’ Union, is having to cope with her fear of heights as she prepares for the daring feat.
“With my fear of heights but a total love for life I knew this was the way to face my fears as so many cancer patients must have to do,” she said.
Marie Curie Cancer Care provides free high-quality nursing to give terminally ill people the choice of dying at home supported by their families.
Scientists at the Marie Curie Research Institute are investigating how cancer develops to find better ways of treating the disease in the future.
The abseil begins at 9am on Sunday (8th May).
