Fearless Fundraiser, Betty

Betty Bromage, age 90, who lives in an Abbeyfield house in Cheltenham has already taken on 2 daredevil activities this year – a wing walk and a zip wire. Her 3rd and final activity is to abseil 161ft down Eagle Tower on Saturday 14th September 2019.

The abseil is being organised by CCP and is open to everyone over the age of 14 years. The event will also be a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Caring for Communities and People. Jasmine Lowes, Assistant Building Manager of Eagle Tower said, “We haven’t had an abseil from Eagle Tower for a couple of years now, but it really is a quite unique experience. We are keen to make the day fun for the whole family and will have activities and stalls in place around the event, including food and drink, face painting, a bouncy castle and much more”.
Betty is fundraising for a summer house with a large patio to be built in the garden of the Abbeyfield house where she lives in St Luke’s Road. The existing summer house is in a bad condition and Betty would like to also add an area where mobility scooters can be stored. This will allow residents to remain independent and active.

Betty is a former Cheltenham Hospital A&E senior nurse and her motto is “To enjoy life to the full!”.

If any local companies would be willing to help fundraise we would love to hear from you.

The support and networking opportunities that the Chamber offered to me as director of a new business really appealed. The board and members I spoke to seemed really interested in my business.
