Charity fund-raiser and local estate agent Bill Honeywell has reached the heights with his latest challenge – an abseil off the famous 230ft high Blackpool roller coaster “The Big One”.

With his next challenge already on the horizon in the form of the ‘Wheels on the Western Front’ bike ride, a 330-mile cycle from London to Belgium and France commemorating the centenary anniversary of the First World War, he would have been excused a couple of months rest, but Bill being Bill, he’s managed to squeeze in another fund raiser beforehand.

He said: “Last year I took part in the first ever Abseil off The Big One at Blackpool, and it was so good I promised to do it again for the Soldiers’ Charity if I got the chance.”
