A PEDMORE woman will take the plunge for charity as she attempts to gain the highest award in Girlguiding.

Victoria Forrest, aged 20, is currently working towards the Queen's Guide Award and will abseil down the highest tower in Europe to raise funds for a Clent children's home.

To secure the award, one of the requirements is to complete a practical project for a chosen charity and Victoria, who is a leader of the 1st Pedmore Brownies, has picked Sunfield Children's Home.

She will complete a sponsored abseil down the National Lift Tower in Northampton on Saturday May 10 and all funds raised will go to the residential special school, which supports children and young people with complex learning needs.

Victoria said: "Although I am not initially afraid of heights, I believe this extreme, but thrilling abseil will test my limits."

The former Pedmore Technology College student said she chose the charity as she was intrigued about the work it did and wanted to find out more.
