BRAVE thrillseekers are being encouraged to abseil down Colchester Town Hall this Halloween.

The Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity hosts an abseil every year to raise money for the Cancer Centre Campaign, which is supported by the Gazette.

This year, the charity is hosting the event on Halloween. Ghosts, ghouls, witches and zombies can abseil 66ft down the town hall during the day or even under the darkness of nightfall.

Time slots are between 2pm and 8pm and fancy dress is encouraged.

Entry is £35 with a minimum of £150 in sponsorship. The minimum age is ten and if under 18 children must be accompanied by an adult and have parental consent.
