A FOUR-YEAR-OLD boy will climb a 26ft tower and abseil back down it to raise money for charity.
Brave Tommy McCarthy-Gammell will be taking part in St Luke’s Take on the Tower event to raise money for the hospice.
A 26ft tower will be set up in St Luke’s grounds in Kenton Road, Kenton, and Tommy will climb up then abseil back down from the top – in his Spider-Man costume.
Tommy said: “It will be really cool, I can climb really high because I am the amazing Spider-Man.
“My mummy works for St Luke’s Hospice and it is a lovely place, they look after very sick people.
“I enjoy going to mum’s events and now I am taking part in one. It’s going to be so cool.”
Tommy’s mother, Kate Gammell is a St Luke’s community fundraiser.
She said: “I am really proud of Tommy.
“He is really excited in taking part and wearing his Spider-Man costume to do it.
“He will be a great super hero and we are all looking forward to the summer fete activities that will be there as well.”
St Luke’s Take on the Tower and summer fete both take place at the hospice on Saturday, July 20.
Entry to climb is £20 and people of all ages and abilities can take part and enjoy free entry to St Luke’s summer fete.
The fete will have lots of great stalls with delicious cakes, refreshments and fun activities for children including games, arts and crafts and much more.
It is open from 11am to 2pm. Admission is £1 for those not taking part in Take on the Tower and children under 12 go free.
