Stuart and Leanne's Charity Abseil

Well done to GMcG’s Stuart McDonald and Leanne McKeown who braved the heights of Belfast's Europa Hotel for a charity abseil!

Stuart & Leanne's Charity abseil

Stuart and Leanne, both based at GMcG Portadown, completed the abseil on Sunday 12th March in aid of the firm’s charity partner for the year, Cancer Fund for Children. Their fundraising is continuing and so far they have raised over £1,000 between them, a tremendous achievement!

So how scary was it? Stuart enthused:

“It was scary and exciting, quite an experience! It was easy to get nervous at the top, especially when first stepping over the edge, but I just avoided looking down and managed ok!

We’d definitely recommend it to others. And it was great to do it for such a worthy cause.  Leanne and I are very grateful and somewhat taken aback by the level of support we have had.  We have far exceeded the target amounts we had set ourselves when we started our fundraising”.  

Donations are very welcome and can be made via their just giving pages:
