Letitia’s going over the top... for charity!

NOW, how do you think the average 63-year-old lady would spend her Sunday afternoon?

Abseiling down a 150 foot building attached to a rope in Belfast City Centre?

Well, if you are Letitia McMullan from Bushmills that’s exactly what you would do to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Letitia and three members of her family tackled the abseil down the facade of the Europa Hotel to raise funds for the charity in memory of a cousin who died from the condition.

Also braving the height of the hotel were Letitia’s son Ricky, daughter Kim and (soon to be) son-in-law Barry Davis.

“Mum saw me do an abseil last year and said it would be a good idea,” Ricky told the Times.

“She did really well doing the abseil and now she is talking about doing a zip line challenge for Cystic Fibrosis later in the year!”

The family have already raised funds by running a coffee morning in Balnamore and are now planning to hold a line dancing evening in the Royal British Legion In Ballymoney on June 14th.

To date, they have raised over £600 and, with plucky Letitia leading the way, they are sure to top that amount in the coming months
