Lanky the Giraffe and Captain Manchester abseil at Emirates Old Trafford.

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no it is Lanky the Giraffe and Captain Manchester abseiling down the Pavilion at Emirates Old Trafford.

Captain Manchester joined forces with Lanky the Giraffe to abseil down the pavilion at Emirates Old Trafford to raise funds to support the LCCC Foundation’s work in the community.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural abseil, supporters of LCCC Foundation took to the roof of the 120 foot Pavilion to complete the 2nd ever abseil to take place at the club.

The two mascots battled it out to get to the bottom of the iconic building to the delight of the supporters and spectators below.

Jayne Leggat, LCCC Foundation Events and Fundraising Manager said “It was great fun today, with Lanky and our supporters showing great courage taking part in our latest challenge”
