A Welwyn woman who is currently battling two types of cancer abseiled down Britain's tallest sculpture to raise money for Welwyn Garden City-based Isabel Hospice.

Lesley Moore, 52, tackled the 80m-high ArcelorMittal in London at the end of last month, raising over £750 in the process.

She said: “I just absolutely loved it, it was so exhilarating!

“I have two types of cancer myself, in my bones and Mesothelioma, originating from breast cancer many years go, and I just want to be able to support Isabel Hospice in any way I can.

“I took part in the ‘fire walk’ a few years ago at Sherrardswood School and when I saw this challenge, I just thought ‘why not’!

“Support from my children, other family and friends has been fantastic and I’m delighted to have raised about £750 for this worthwhile cause.

“I have some fantastic photos to remind me of this amazing challenge.”
