They put their fears aside to walk backwards down Colchester’s Clock Tower in Sunday.
Kerry said: “The Mayor of Colchester was the first person to abseil down the Clock tower in Colchester on Sunday and I followed him.
“I must admit going over the top and getting over the ledges was scarier than doing a parachute jump.”
