Daredevil helpers.

These fearless women were roped into abseiling 200ft for a cancer charity.

The women, many of whom work at Butties sandwich shop in Skelmanthorpe, decided to take the plunge when a colleague's mother died of the disease.

On of the organisers, Karen Pickersgill, said: "She and her brother decided they wanted to do something.

"They asked all their friends - and we did."

The group raised about pounds 2,000 for the Macmillan charity from their effort at Baitings reservoir, near Ripponden.
