A brave White Rose Team wanted


8:37am 9th September 2017

A team of White Rose daredevils are wanted.

It's all for a sponsored abseil down the iconic Manchester building, The Trafford Centre. 

The British Red Cross want to encourage a team of men and women from Yorkshire to take on the Lancastrians in a challenge like no other.

You will scale down the building - maybe even in fancy dress - showing people from Lancashire what Yorkshire folk can do on their home turf.

Does this sound like something you'd want to do?

The event takes place Saturday 16th September, and is open to anyone who thinks they're brave enough. 

Helen Whale, Senior Community Fundraiser for Red Cross Yorkshire spoke to us at Stray FM: "We are looking for brave participants to raise funds for the work we do here in the UK.

"If Yorkshire was a country, we would have come 14th in the Rio Olympics, so we want people to come and represent our fabulous county and show them how much money we can raise as well. 

"If you've never done an abseil before it's definitely something to be proud of - especially if you're scared of doing it people are much more likely to donate because you're showing just how brave you can be."
