Over the top for charity.

Byline: By Guy Newey

SAIRA Rani-Kapil coolly waves for the camera - despite hanging 250 feet above Birmingham city centre.

The 27-year-old from Oldbury took part in a sponsored abseil to raise cash for the National Blind Children's Society. Brave fund-raisers, including one blind volunteer, headed down the side of Trident House, in Broad Street, as part of events to mark World Sight Day.

The NBCS, which has one of its regional bases in Hagley Road West, Quinton, was featured in the Birmingham Mail earlier this year after it won support from our Charity Trust. Stacey Daly, from the NCBS, said the charity provided crucial help for kids and families
