Charity abseil cancelled

First published in News

A charity abseil by Hampshire soldiers to raise funds for comrades injured in the line of duty has been cancelled due to the weather.

Troops from Hampshire’s army troop The Tigers were due to abseil down the 170ft Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth but high winds have meant the stunt has been postponed.

A total of 40 people were due to take on the Spinnaker Tower challenge including friends and supporters of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment.

And among them was due to be double amputee Sgt Jay Baldwin, who was injured by an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2012 and will be the first veteran double amputee to abseil down the tower.
