Kate Hershkowitz, NSPCC community fundraising manager, said: “This special abseil in aid of the NSPCC marks 60 years of fundraising in Sussex by our local volunteers.”

Jacobs Steel has five people taking part and has set a target to raise £1,250, Micawber Lettings has already almost hit its £500 target, and Spratt & Son has raised £230 so far.

Jayde Pope, marketing manager at Jacobs Steel, which has branches in Worthing, Lancing, Shoreham and Findon, said: “Jacobs Steel have always been proud to represent our community at local, charitable events since our business was founded 35 years ago.

“For 2020, we’ve set ourselves a target to raise £20,000 for our communities and for charitable causes that mean something to our staff.

“Our five-strong team taking part in the abseil for NSPCC jumped at the chance to tick something off their bucket lists for a cause close to their hearts.”

The money raised will go towards services such as Speak Out Stay Safe, which is run in primary schools.
