BRAVE SIAN ABSEILS FOR THE ARK
BRAVE SIAN ABSEILS FOR THE ARK

6 April 2018

Plucky Solicitor Sian Lias is set to abseil down the Emirates Spinnaker Tower on Saturday to raise money for the Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Sian, who is a member of the Wills and Probate team at Phillips, is a last minute addition to a team of daredevils, organised by Beaufort Financial, who will abseil 100 metres down the side of the iconic Portsmouth landmark.

Excited but slightly pensive about the abseil, Sian said: “I’m doing this to push myself outside my comfort zone to raise money for a great cause.”

Sian added: “I’m really looking forward to having done the abseil, but not necessarily actually doing it – it will be a fantastic personal achievement.”

Ark Cancer Centre Charity is raising £5million towards a cancer treatment centre that will be built in Basingstoke by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The aim of the charity is to ensure the provision of a range of complementary and support therapies in one inspirational building that will offer a therapeutic, healing environment.

Mark Jones, director of fundraising and communications at Ark Cancer Centre Charity, said: “Thank you to Sian and all of our daredevil Ark supporters who are taking part in the abseil challenge, and thanks to everyone who sponsors them. Every pound raised makes a difference.”
