36 fearless fundraisers, including the Elected Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson, took part in a 100ft Free Hanging Abseil in support of the Royal West of England Academy on 7 September. The staff, volunteers, board of trustees and Academicians suspended from a crane dressed as their favourite artists to raise money for Bristol's Oldest Art Gallery.

The money raised will go towards supporting the RWA (an independent Registered Charity, no. 1070163) in providing an inclusive programme of exhibitions, events and educational activities aimed at enhancing the knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of art for the widest possible audience.
