A Northumberland outdoor adventure company has announced a charity abseil next month.

Wild About Adventure, which is based in Barrasford, is inviting people to take part in the Great North Abseil, where guests will navigate down the walls of Langley Castle to raise money for charity on June 5 - 6.

Wild About Adventure recently announced Maggie’s Cancer Care Centre at the Freeman Hospital as its official charity partner and initially the event was only open to supporters of Maggie’s.

However, it has since been opened up so money can be raised for any charity.

Paul Mordue, from Wild about Adventure, said: “We’ve signed up for an official charity partnership with Maggie’s and wanted to kick that off with something special.

“We want to do our bit to give back and raise as much money as possible for an amazing charity.”

The event in June marks the second Great North Abseil after last year’s inaugural event in September, and there will be a third later this year around Hallowe’en.

Paul said: “We put it on when the Great North Run was cancelled last year.

“It was a little bit of a rushed mission as we only had two weeks to plan it, but we raised about £20,000 for various charities around the North East.”

And while participants must be at least 10 years old, there’s no upper age limit.

In fact, Paul’s Mum is abseiling on June 6 to celebrate her 71st birthday! Paul said: “My mum is terrified of heights but she’s desperate to do it!”

You can still register to take part in the abseil should you want to. Find more information at https://greatnorthabseil.eventbrite.co.uk
