Tremayne Crossley (system design co-ordinator) and Richard Sice (marketing manager) from voice alarm system specialist SigNET AC Ltd, recently abseiled from the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle in order to help raise money for a local charity, Disability North. Tremayne says "the thrill and experience of standing on top of the Tyne bridge with nothing but space below was exhilarating." He added: "I descended quickly and the 90ft drop to terra firma took no time at all. I was keen to go again but there was already a queue for the next group of abseilers."
