Betty Stogs takes a leap of faith for charity

From 6 June 2012

Cornwall's fairest maid, Betty Stogs, abseils down the Maritime Museum in Falmouth for BF Adventure.

A 95ft drop held no fear for Skinner's Brewery's Betty Stogs as she abseiled down the National Maritime Museum Cornwall to raise money for BF Adventure.

The event, on Sunday, June 3, was part of the Truro & Penwith College Fal River Festival and saw people of all ages take on the challenge for BF Adventure.

BF Adventure, based just outside of Penryn, work to build brighter futures for disadvantaged, disaffected and disabled young people and adults across Cornwall.

Using the medium of outdoor activities they run tailor-made programmes including information, advice and guidance to help our clients to move into a bright future.

The abseil from the Maritime Museum's tower is one of their annual fundraisers and is always a highlight of the Fal River Festival.

This year, Skinner's Brewery's Betty Stogs was on hand to take on the challenge and do her part to support the cause.

Watch and listen to Betty in the video below to hear her thoughts on the festival and the abseil challenge:
