FOUR Rotary Club of Perth members will become superheroes for a day plunging 220m from one of Perth’s tallest buildings to raise money for charity.

Beatrice Cervi, David Wee, Michele Roget and Jacques Phillips will abseil from the top of Central Park on Sunday, September 4 with money raised going to Kids’ Camp.

Club president Larry Hirsch said the team aimed to raise $8000 for the non-profit group that provides camps for children and young people with a disability.

“It’s fair to say our ‘superheroes’ are having a few sleepless nights imagining the moment they step into space 220m above St George’s Terrace,” Mr Hirsch said.


The annual Central Park Plunge is in its second year and money raised goes to Ronald McDonald House Perth, The Fiona Wood Foundation, Anglicare WA and Kids’ Camps.

Four ropes will descend the side of Central Park from September 2-4 with teams of four making their way down.
