|Beatles tourguide to scale down Liverpool landmark for charity|
[Posted by Katie Hickox on Monday, 04/13/09 12:27 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Jean Catharell is a Liverpool Beatles historian and tour guide. She's also very courageous, as she will be undertaking a most dangerous activity Saturday, July 18, to raise money for The Stroke Association. Jean will be rappelling by rope down 13 floors of Liverpool's most memorable landmark, The Royal Liver Building, which is synonymous with Liverpool and adjacent to Liverpool's Albert Dock on the Mersey River.
Jean has had the good fortune of meeting all four Beatles. She told me, "Meeting all The Beatles at one time or other is something I've always cherished." Jean also works for LIPA, The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, a school co-founded in 1985 by Sir Paul McCartney after his old school, the Liverpool Institute for Boys, was at risk of closing.
When asked why she decided to take a physical risk scaling down the side of a 295 foot building, Jean replied, "Apart from wanting to do it to raise money for a worthwhile cause, I wanted to do it because it was the Liver Building which, to every Beatle fan, is an immediately recognised building in Liverpool."
Well done, Jean! You have now set a new standard for all Beatles fans to show their love for the Beatles to raise money for charity! Go to Jean's website www.liverpoolbeatlescene.com and the Stroke Association for more details about Jean's Liverpool adventure!
