Would you abseil off the Crowne Plaza hotel?


Last updated Apr 30, 2021

Daredevils are needed to abseil off the 140-foot Crowne Plaza hotel in Harrogate to raise money for Yorkshire Cat Rescue.

The charity needs 15 brave volunteers to take the plunge off the top of the building, located next to the conference centre, on July 3rd.

Volunteers will need to raise at least £100 for the charity, which takes in and rehomes unwanted cats and kittens. The money will be used to pay for food and vet bills.

Volunteers will get kitted out at the top of the hotel by trained staff, before lowering themselves down the side and back up at their own pace.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue, based in Keighley, found homes for 557 cats last year, and spent more than £100,000 on vet bills.

This is the charity’s second extreme stunt to raise money, after March 2020 saw volunteers walk on hot coals in a fundraising firewalk.
