On Sunday 21st October, a team from BASICS Scotland including Graeme Ramage, Chelsee Henderson, Kirsty Laird and Dr Colville Laird took on the 165ft drop from the Forth Rail Bridge to raise money for The Sandpiper Trust. Thanks to the generous support we have had, we managed to reach our target of £2000 which meant that Dr Laird took on the abseil challenge dressed as Batman!!!
Despite Dr Laird’s best efforts to get out of doing the challenge as Batman, he donned the suit, cloak and mask, and with encouraging cheers of support from family and friends, took on the 165ft descent.
Many thanks to everyone who came along to support the team and to everyone who kindly donated.
