Andrew Pickup raises money for the Stroke Association

Director of Karonia, Andrew Pickup has abseiled 269ft down the CLV building in Leeds with two fellow band members from The Turnarounds in aid of the Stoke Association.

He was joined by Chris Hornby who plays Saxophone and drummer Matthew Hattersley also took part in the latest of a number of fundraising initiatives.

The trio, which played at the kbbBirmingham exhibitor party in 2014, have already raised over £550 for the charity and donations can still be made at Just Giving.

Abseiling in less than favourable conditions, Pickup commented: “The strong wind and rain definitely added to the drama of the event and it was great to get a bird’s-eye view of the city.”
