Well done to our abseil heroes!

We are thrilled to have had supporters, volunteers, a young person and member of staff come together and take part in the Forth Rail Bridge Abseil in South Queensferry yesterday. 

The team of 6 did an amazing job braving the elements and abseiling down the 165ft drop free-fall style from the iconic Forth Rail Bridge. Despite the pouring rain, they all had big smiles on their faces as they landed back on the sandy beach below the bridge. 

Together they raised an incredible £2,970 so far to support our work with LGBTI young people across Scotland. Support like this is absolutely vital for us - it ensures we can keep our youth work services running, and help more young people at points of crisis or as they deal with the long-term impact of discrimination, rejection and isolation.

Well done and a big thank you to Ben, Andy, Cara, Rachael, Callum and Keith for taking on the Forth Rail Bridge challenge. We really appreciate it!
