A five-year-old boy is preparing to take part in a 100ft abseil to raise money for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

Tyreese Sheriffe from Illingworth, will be the youngest person taking part in the 100ft abseil at the ROKT climbing centre, Brighouse, as part of the centres charity day on Wednesday, July 17, to help raise money for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

His mum Joleene Sheriffe said: “I am very proud of Tyreese. I think it’s nice for children to realise how lucky they are when they are fit and healthy and can do pretty much what they like.”

Romaine Maret, Community Fundraiser at the hospice added: “100ft is about the full length of three buses, it is a great height and for five-year-old Tyreese to be taking on this challenge is a terrific feat, we wish him the best of luck!”

The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice provides care for children with life threatening conditions, and their families, across Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, and must raise over £2.5million per year.
