Thousands raised for Kent good causes via KM Charity Team Maidstone abseil

By KentOnline reporter

Thrill seeking fundraisers made for a record breaking abseil where more than £20,000 was raised for charities across Kent.

It was the KM Charity's biggest challenge of its kind with 129 people taking the plunge down a 135ft drop.

Held at Miller House in Maidstone  the abseil boosted the coffers of 27 charities.

The challenge was supported by accountants DSH, scaffolding firm Island Scaffolding and Miller House.

Chris Morgan raised £1,572 for Sevenoaks Area Mind and as the biggest individual fundraiser he won a two-day break in a fisherman's hut at Whitstable. Best fancy dress costume went to Medway’s Lara Lomax, who made the drop as Superwoman in support of the Milly Moo Right Now Foundation.

Simon Dolby from the KM Charity Team said: "The day went incredibly well. It was a privilege to work with so many people passionate about their favourite good cause."

The adrenaline junkies could also be on their way to winning a limited edition KM Brain and BrawnTriathlon T-shirt and other prizes. To qualify for the KM Brain and Brawn challenge, participants must complete three different KM challenges in the same calendar year.

The challenges include the KM abseils, KM Big Quiz events, KM Dragon Boat Race, KM Big Bike Ride, KM Charity Walk or the new KM Assault Course Challenge.
