Yorkshire Cat Rescue is calling for final volunteers to abseil down Harrogate’s Crowne Plaza Hotel in a daring fundraiser.
There are six slots left for those willing to take the plunge on the 3rd of July. The spaces were previously filled but due to a handful of last-minute dropouts there is space left for those wanting to sign up.
The abseil scales 140 feet and those taking part will be trained on the day by professionals.
Participants will need to pay a registration fee of £25 and are also asked to raise a minimum of £100 for the charity.
So far the charity has managed to raise more than £10,000 through the event but are aiming to reach £15,000 in the final few weeks.

This isn’t the first daring exploit run by the charity; last year it held a ‘firewalk’ in Skipton where participants walked over burning coals.
Yorkshire Cat Rescue has been taking in unwanted cats and kittens and giving them homes for nearly 20 years. As an independent charity, it relies on fundraising to keep going.
The money it raises will go towards rescuing more cats, food, vet bills and shelter.
