Erin to scale the heights of Belfast City tower block

Erin Coll
Erin is one of the brave people taking on Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Take on the Tower Abseil, which will see supporters from across Northern Ireland abseil Belfast City Hospital’s famous tower block on Saturday, 22nd April.
Erin is calling on the people of Fermanagh to follow her lead and sign-up to take on the North’s fourth tallest building and make a 190ft adrenaline filled descent right in the heart of Belfast.
 Erin, whose granda was treated for cancer, is taking on the challenge to say thank you for the support they received whilst at the Cancer Centre. Looking ahead to the abseil she said:
 “I wanted to take part in the abseil to say a huge thank you to Friends of the Cancer Centre for the amazing support they have given to my granda and family. The service they provide is phenomenal and benefits so many families.
“While I’m nervous about the challenge, I’m also really excited and I know the money that I raise will make a huge difference to Friends of the Cancer Centre. Places for the abseil are filling up fast, so I’d call on the people of Fermanagh to make sure they don’t miss out on this great event and sign up to Take on the Tower today.”
Friends of the Cancer Centre’s fundraising manager, Claire Hogarth said: “Over the past two years, nearly 400 people from across Northern Ireland have taken part in the Take on the Tower abseil.  This year we want to make the event bigger and better and are calling on thrill seekers from Fermanagh to Take on the Tower for us and raise funds for local cancer patients and their families.”
