Peacehaven Cliffs abseil marks #Gibsons100 Challenge

Published on: 25th September 2019

Three generations of the Gibsons family abseiled down the Peacehaven Cliffs to raise money for children’s charity, Jigsaw4U.

2019 is a special year for Gibsons, as it marks 100 years since it first began trading as a British family business back in 1919. To celebrate this momentous milestone, the Gibsons team has been undertaking the #Gibsons100 challenge, which encourages them to take part in a challenge or act of kindness to commemorate the 100 years of Gibsons and raise money for children’s charity, Jigsaw4U.

Last weekend, three generations of the Gibsons family abseiled all 100ft of the Peacehaven Cliffs in Sussex. Michael and Kate Gibson together with her nine year old daughter and 10 year old nephew took to the cliff with other friends and family. The #Gibsons100 Challenge has raised over £1500 to date for Jigsaw4U.

Kate Gibson, managing director said: “This was a huge challenge for me, and I had to dig deep to conquer my fear of heights, but taking on the challenge alongside my Dad and daughter was a huge comfort. I am so proud of our team who have shown what it means to work together for a common goal raising money for Jigsaw4U, a wonderful charity that helps children and young people put the pieces back together by providing bereavement counselling and supporting those who have been affected by crime.”

The team would be hugely grateful for any donations big or small. Click here to make a donation.
