THE SCOTTISH SPCA are looking for volunteers to abseil down the Forth Rail Bridge to raise money for animals in need.

Sharon Comrie, animal rescue and rehoming superintendent, said: “We’re calling on animal lovers and adrenaline junkies alike to take part in this once in a lifetime challenge.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to do something to fun and memorable and to raise vital funds to rehabilitate, rehome and release animals in Scotland.

“At the event, there will be a team of highly skilled instructors to ensure participants are equipped with everything they need to make the abseil as safe and enjoyable as possible.

“Those who have taken part in abseils for us in previous years have said that it’s an amazing experience and one they’ll never forget.”

Regular Scottish SPCA fundraiser John Murasev has completed the Forth Rail Bridge abseil three times and has raised around £500 for the charity by doing these events alone.

He said: “The reason I took part in the Forth Rail Bridge Abseil was because I saw this as the perfect opportunity to raise much needed funds and raise awareness of the work the Scottish SPCA does.

“This was an incredible challenge and I loved the adrenaline rush so I decided to do it twice more since.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to see one of Scotland’s most iconic man-made features and I would urge anyone to take part.”

The Forth Rail Abseil will take place on Sunday 9 June. You can find out more and register to take part by visiting or you can email [email protected] or call 03000 999 999 (opt 4).
