“Other members of staff were at hand to provide morale-boosting support and I am sure a few of them will have no hesitation in answering the call again.

“Everyone is aware of how much Weston Hospicecare does for the community and it was great to be a part of the experience which was a fantastic achievement by all.”

Diane said: “Abseiling down Uphill quarry is an experience that will stay with me for a long time. I was so glad I plucked up the courage to do it.”
