Jayne Preddy is a volunteer at St Giles Hospice and took part in our first-ever Millers Dale Bridge abseil in October 2022.
She said: “I chose to do the abseil because I already volunteer at St Giles Hospice so I appreciate the work that they do – but to do it, they need the funding!
“My husband passed away from brain cancer a couple of years ago – throughout the journey we met a lot of supportive people, so I’d like others going through similar to have a supportive journey too.
“The best thing about taking part was the satisfaction of doing something completely different and totally out of my comfort zone. When I got to the abseil on the day I had no nerves whatsoever – the team were very supportive. It felt really good, my daughter came to cheer me on and take some photos. It left me on a high and made me think, what can I do next!”
