The house heads at Eggar’s School in Holybourne abseiled down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth to raise more than £1,500 for Cancer Research UK.

Lucy Tomkinson (Montgomery House), Matt Farris (Austen House) and Carly McCready-Williams (Spenser House) were proud to represent the school.

Mrs Tomkinson said: “I was absolutely terrified and my colleague Mr Farris overcame his fear of heights by taking on the challenge. Our colleague Mrs McCready-Williams was calm and collected in comparison. The three of us ultimately enjoyed the experience and feel very proud to have raised vital funds for a charity close to our hearts.”
