THE search is on - for the new Dambusters.
Macmillan Cancer Relief are looking for people with a sense of adventure and a head for heights.
The challenge is to abseil down the 200ft (70-metre) wall of Baitings Dam above Ripponden.
The event takes place over the weekend of June 5 and 6 and is to raise money for the Calderdale and Huddersfield Macmillan Appeal.
The appeal is hoping to provide further Macmillan nurses, which will include a specialist to work in nursing homes, a GP Facilitator to enhance links with primary care and other health professionals and share specialist skills and knowledge about cancer and a specialist dietician to work solely with cancer patients.
This is in addition to extending the existing Calderdale Macmillan Care Project which supports patients and their families in their own homes.
The charity abseil takes place on a dam that is far higher than any building in the area.
When built in 1956 it was the highest dam in the UK.
Last year the event was a huge success with more than 100 people taking part, all helping to raise more than £15,000, £6,000 of which was raised by local people for the local appeal.
This year the charity is hoping that even more people will take part.
All entrants must be over 18 and pledge to raise a minimum of £120 which includes a £20 registration fee.
Anyone interested in taking part, or wanting more information, should contact Rose Tipton at the appeal office on 01484 342134.
