SEVEN Midhurst firefighters have taken part in the daring abseiling challenge from the Spinnaker Tower to raise funds for the Fire Fighters Charity.

Joe Watters, Mark Purves, his father Nigel Purves, Dan Moon, Neil McKay, Matt Gamblen and Duncan Knight who is not pictured were part of a 32-strong team who took part in the courageous 300ft plunge from the tower on Sunday, watched by thousands of shoppers and visitors as well as family members.

Joe told the Observer: “It was a pretty terrifying experience, but it was worthwhile.”

Midhurst firefighters raised £250 each, a total of £1,500 towards the £10,000 total from the whole team.

Joe said: “We would like to thank David Stanton and the Seven Fish Restaurant for their huge generosity in sponsoring us.”

There is still time to make a charity donation to the brave Midhurst crew and Joe, who surely deserves special support for his courageous and very public marriage proposal.

Donations can be given at Joe Watters Just Giving
