THRILL seeking fundraisers are still being urged to sign up for an adrenalin fuelled abseil down an iconic Suffolk lighthouse.
The event, which is happening in Southwold next Sunday (August 9) in aid of the RNLI, will be attended by actors David Morrissey and Bernard Hill.
Mr Morrissey, narrator of the BBC1 series Seaside Rescue, which follows the work of volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards, said: 'The RNLI provides an essential service for our coastline. These brave men and woman can only do their brilliant work with your support. Please help them to continue their life saving work by giving generously to their cause.'
Mr Hill, who is a member of Southwold Sailing Club and is taking part in the abseil, is best-known for playing Captain Edward John Smith in Titanic.
