PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The Apprentice star Amy Anzel will be joining soap stars Anthony Quinlan and girlfriend Nikki Sanderson as they prepare to become real life super heroes and descend a dizzying 19 storeys to help sick children and their families. Also on board to help Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity is powerlifter Jazmine Franks. Jazmine took on the abseil last year with fellow actors David Tag, Simon Gregson and Joe Duttine, but this will be Amy’s first time. “Once you get over that initial thing of going over the edge, you actually relax into it and have a lot of fun," Jazmine said. Amy added: “I’m so excited to be involved and can’t wait to see the amazing views across Manchester and the Peaks. Although I have to admit, I'm a little bit nervous.

I'm honoured to be involved and support such a brilliant cause.” Both Nikki and Anthony are supporters of the charity – Nikki ran the Great Manchester Run for the cause in 2010. But boyfriend Anthony will have the upper hand this weekend, having previously done the abseil in 2016 with pal Jamie Lomas. He said: “It was scary then and it’s scary now. But I guess having done it before, I’ll have to try and be better than Nikki. She’s fearless though. “It’ll be good fun as soon as the stress of going over the edge is gone. There could be a bit of friendly rivalry going on, we’ll see, but it’s all in aid of a good cause and we’re both looking forward to it.” Nikki Sanderson and boyfriend (Image: submitted) Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity is hosting the event at the Hyatt Regency Hotel near Oxford Road. The hotel’s location just off Oxford Road means participants will be able to see the children’s hospital from the rooftop before they make their descent. The Charity still has slots open for anyone who wants to join the abseil, which is taking place on Sunday, June 26.

The Charity’s Senior Events Manager Viv Williamson said: “Humphrey’s Heroes Abseil is one of my personal highlights in the Charity calendar – seeing those scared faces turn to elation when they’ve completed the abseil is amazing. “I also love getting the chance to speak to fundraisers and find out what made them push aside their fears and do something amazing for a worthy cause. Often they have a personal experience of our hospital and it’s humbling to hear their stories. It reminds us all of the importance of our Charity and our amazing NHS hospital workers. “All our participants have a fantastic day and bring along supporters to cheer them on in the garden. So I’d encourage anyone to give it a go.” Participants can sign up on the Charity’s website until Friday lunchtime at www.rmchcharity.org.uk Any last-minute entries can email firstname.lastname@example.org or show up from 10am on the day and enquire if there are any spaces left.
