14 May Mayor of Coleford Leaps to New Heights in His Support of the Centre
Mayor of Coleford, Nick Penny, completed a dramatic abseil this weekend as he continues to fundraise for The Forest of Dean Children’s Opportunity Centre, as his nominated Charity of the Year.
Nick was extremely fortunate with the weather and enjoyed dry and bright conditions for his sponsored abseil off Wintours Leap, near Woodcroft, around five miles from Coleford. The stunning scenery certainly added some drama to this fundraising event!
Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) were on hand to support Nick in case of emergency, but thankfully, Nick completed the abseil and his efforts have raised well over £1000.
Once again, on behalf of all staff, volunteers and families who attend the Centre, we are as ever, incredibly grateful for the continued support from Nick and Coleford Town Council.
