SPONSORED 100ft ABSEIL
RMDC Support Worker Tracy Bartlett has a new lease of life and has become our mini daredevil. Tracy faced her fears and took on her first ever 100ft abseil. To say Tracy was nervous is an understatement and the weather held off just enough. We are proud to say that out of 75 people doing the abseil, Tracy was the highest Sponsored individual with over £700 raised for the centre. Here are some pictures from the day.
Well done Tracy and Thank you.
