Fiona Stanley Nurses take the plunge

Nurses take 40 storey plunge for charity

A team of ten nurses from the Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth have raised a whopping $11,000 for Lymphoma Australia.

The group took part in the annual Urban Descent down Perth's tallest building the QV1 on Friday 12 April - conquering their fears to help their patients.


HAMMOND Park’s Annita House is used to dealing with pressure situations, but the one she’ll face on April 12 would rattle even the bravest of people.

Ms House is one of 10 Fiona Stanley Hospital nurses who will dangle 40 storeys above the Perth CBD and abseil down one of the city’s tallest building as part of the QV1 Urban Descent Abseil.

She said the team’s goal was to raise $10,000 for Lymphoma Australia.

10 Fiona Stanley Hospital nurses will abseil off QV1.

“We want to create awareness about the amazing work that Lymphoma Australia do, they are the only charity in Australia solely dedicated to supporting children and adults with lymphoma,” she said.

“Most of the girls have a fear of heights, so as you can imagine they are a bit nervous about taking the plunge but happy to conquer their fears for such a worthy cause.

“I’ve abseiled before, so have an idea of what to expect and will be on hand to provide support to all of my team.

“I’m hoping to go down face first, but we’ll have to see how courageous I’m feeling on the day.”
