Shanna Forward, a Higher National Diploma Animal Care student at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC), has raised more than £700 for the SSPCA by abseiling from the 165ft-high Forth Rail Bridge.

Animal lover Shanna signed up for the event after seeing it advertised on the SSPCA’s website as she browsed online for job opportunities.

Shanna, who studies at SRUC’s Elmwood Campus in Cupar and volunteers for the SSPCA, said, “The view from the top of the bridge was spectacular and seeing the crowd below really encouraged me to go for it, plus I knew I was doing it for a worthy cause.  The scariest part was climbing over the barrier to the edge of the bridge, however once I was over I relaxed and the 165ft descent was amazing!”
