Charity Abseil Success

24th April, 2018

On Sunday the 22nd of April 2018 The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse Charitable Incorporated Organisation held one of their two Annual abseil events at Leasowe Lighthouse on Lingham Lane in Moreton.

The event took place within the private Lighthouse grounds, which the organization has leased from Wirral Council since 2016.

A total of 41 participants had booked and were brave enough to climb the 130 steps to the top where, they were met by professional abseiling instructors who reassured and assisted each one of them with their rope descent.

Of the 41 who took part many were abseiling to fund raise on behalf of local charities and small community groups, ranging from one person on behalf of The Red Cross to, some Cancer Vasculitis and Hospice support groups, local Scouts and Guides, Wirral CAB and even a Heritage Railway Support group.

The event also welcomed a number of entries from the Spider-Ede appeal, which is raising money towards a larger fund covering specialist medical support for a very young Wallasey Girl being treated abroad.

The abseil event also serves as a way to raise funds to enable The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse CIO to run and maintain the more than 255 year old Lighthouse, which since 2016 they now do completely from their own earned resources and donations.

The Lighthouse is open to the public for viewing on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, and is available for private tours by small groups.

The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse are always looking for new members especially those who feel they can join our volunteer group to assist with open days and events.

The Trustees of Leasowe Lighthouse

We have a number of bespoke educational posters on display at the Lighthouse, on the ground floor.  Each panel represents a different year of World War 1 and shows stories both from the war itself and the soldiers and their families – on both sides of the conflict.

Of particular interest to us is the story of Alfred Scott, The Great, Great Uncle of one of the Founder Members of The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse.



When the Lighthouse is closed or if you live far from us you can still enjoy the view from the top and check the weather on the Wirral by looking through our webcam.
