Natalie Walker, events manager at The Myton Hospices, said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who participated in and volunteered at our abseil down Coventry Cathedral.

"It was inspiring to see people face their fears head-on while raising awareness and vital funds for Myton.

"Their courage, dedication and generosity made for a heart-warming day, full of stories, support and cheering each other on.
