We’ve reached new heights for charity

We are Kudos director Denise Leatt not only raised over £650 for charity but also conquered her lifelong fear of height in abseiling 212ft down the Derby Cathedral.

The abseil, which took place on Saturday 11th September 2021, went very well and after climbing up the extremely narrow 189 stone steps of the 212-foot tower, Denise then abseiled down the 212ft high Cathedral, watched by a crowd of excited onlookers.

Denise commented: “Climbing over the bar at the top and balancing on the edge was the worst bit of the abseil, I really enjoyed the descent down (as you can see in my photos!) and I have so far managed to raise £677 to support the charity ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ which grants the wishes of children living with a life-threatening illness.”

The charity also organises days out and treats for the children, helping them to have some fun and smile.

“I have always been extremely nervous of  heights as my legs usually turn to jelly, but as it is such a great course that helps many children, it was worth facing my fear,” added Denise.

To find out more you can visit Denise’s Just Giving page.

Here are some of the wishes that have been granted for children with life-threatening illnesses.
