Climbing the heights for Comic Relief

16 March 2017 6:25PM

Instructors at Maryport’s Wave Centre will scale the heights and plunge the depths for Red Nose Day next week.

Dave Topliss, Michael Davies, Steven James and Ben Wright will use Clip ’n Climb to climb the equivalent heights and depths of some of Africa’s most incredible landmarks. They will cover more than 11,000 ft.

They are urging the public to sponsor their efforts as they climb the depth of the Kimberley Diamond Mines, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Fish River Canyon, and the height of the Victoria Falls, Great Pyramid of Giza, the four 20m statues of Abu Simbel, the Edfu Temple, the Hand of Fatima, Limestone Chimney of Lake Abbe, the Sphinx and the Tugela Falls, the second tallest waterfall in the world.

As well as the big climb, the Wave is offering the chance for a family to win a year’s pass to Clip ’n Climb and Cave at the Wave in a raffle. Tickets are £1 and are on sale now from the Wave.

There is also a design a wall competition with a voucher for two to Clip ’n Climb, and a bake sale.

The events will all take place next Friday.
