A regional daily journalist is set to abseil almost 800 feet down a Grade I listed structure in aid of a charity appeal by her newspaper.
The abseil will be in aid of the 125 Appeal, which has been set up by the Argus to mark the paper’s 125th anniversary.
The campaign aims to recruit 125 teams of fundraisers for St David’s Hospice Care, in Newport, as well as cash for the charity.
The bridge over the River Usk, which was built in 1906, stands at 774 ft high and is only one of eight structures of its kind in use worldwide.
As well as her abseiling exploits, Estel is hosting a bake sale and raffle to help her reach her own personal target of raising £1,250 for the appeal.
She said: “Through my work at the South Wales Argus I have learnt what a difference St David’s Hospice make in Gwent.”
