LAKE District climbing legend Sir Chris Bonington abseiled down Lancaster University’s 150ft Bowland Tower as part of the university’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
He was joined by more than 70 charity abseilers, both staff and students, all raising funds for the Student Hardship Fund, Ageing Research, Food Security, St John’s Hospice in Lancaster and the Dukes Theatre’s ‘MAKE Project’, which provides creative opportunities for young people.
The event was run by abseiling experts, Langdale-based Highpoint Mountain Guides, who provided help and guidance to all participants.
