The president of a rotary club in the UK raised more than £1,000 for Parkinson’s disease research on Sunday by abseiling down the UK’s tallest sculpture.

Adam Hunter, president of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club swung 262 feet down the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Olympic Park.

The money raised from the freefall stunt is going to Parkinson’s UK, chosen because Adam’s father lives with Parkinson’s disease.

Adam said: “I want to thank everyone who has supported me. Your donations are going to make a big difference and enable Parkinson’s UK to continue the great work that they do.”
