Brave volunteers are being sought to abseil down one of the Croydon's tallest buildings.

The Firefighters Charity is looking for 70 volunteers to abseil down the Jury's Inn hotel in Wellesley Road.

The daring volunteers will help raise vital funds and celebrate the charities 70th anniversary, by participating in the October 12 event.

Participants must be 18 or over and have no serious medical conditions. There is a £15 registration fee, and a minimum of £70 sponsorship has to be raised.

All participants will receive a certificate to prove they took part in the challenge and those who raise over £100 will receive a blaze bear.
