Daredevils needed to take the plunge and abseil down iconic Sheffield building
Daredevils are being urged to take the plunge and join in a frightful fancy dress abseil for Halloween.
Volunteers are being sought for the abseil down the Owen Building in Sheffield city centre on Sunday, October 30, dressed as anything from zombies to superheroes.
Those taking part will be descending down a 120ft drop down the landmark building, which is covered with the ‘What If?’ poem by Sir Andrew Motion.
The challenge is to help raise vital funds for the British Red Cross.
There will be prizes for the best fancy dress, best fundraiser and the university with the most sign-ups.
