More than 60 brave men and women abseiled off the top of Stevenage’s Lister Hospital on Sunday to raise money for the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity.
The daring participants included East and North Herts NHS staff, volunteers, supporters and representatives from local businesses, who all made it down the 11 storey building.
The abseilers pledged £15,000 to the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity.
The money raised will be put towards equipment and research which goes 'above and beyond' the normal NHS remit.
Rachael Corser, director of nursing at East and North Herts NHS Trust, never expected to abseil from the roof of the hospital.
