Mission Possible in Cheltenham - 19 November 2006

Mission Possible was an event held to raise funds for the cancer treatment of 11-year-old Nikita Moore from the village of Peasedown St. John near Bath. 84 people abseiled down Cheltenham's tallest building - the 160ft Eagle Tower. The jumps of Matthew Holbrook, Karen Upton and Sarah Devereux are documented in their own sections. The photos on this page cover all other aspects of this amazing one-off event. Many people put severe anxiety to one side to help raise funds for Nikita, who has suffered from a rare cancer since she was three. The event raised sufficient funds to enable Nikita to return to America for an additional course of treatment.

Hearts sink at the reality of Eagle Tower!

A vicious monster sneaks up on Nikita!

Nikita panics and hides

Soldiers arrive to sort out the situation

The monster has now been despatched to the top of the building

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Nikita's dad and friends never fly without wings

There he goes, hoping for a soft landing

See you on the ground
