Richard Beeby, programme director for Northamptonshire County Council’s HQ-build Project Angel, will face his fear of heights this week when he climbs the 50-metre on-site crane.

And once at the top, he’ll then walk out along the 20-metre jib – all to raise money for the Christmas present appeal for Looked After Children and children in need in the county.

Weather permitting, the climb will take place on Wednesday, 7 October at 10:00am.

Richard said: “I’m terrified of heights! But this is a great cause and so I’m willing to try and conquer my fear to raise some money.

“This is a unique opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of what will be the new council HQ. I’m just hoping it’s not going to be too windy.”

Richard would really appreciate your support for this worthwhile cause and if you would like to sponsor him you can do this via his JustGiving page.
