Popular Big Issue vendor Clive has taken on his fear of heights to raise funds for charity by abseiling down the college where he passed his GCSEs.
The Plymouth seller hit the headlines last summer when he achieved his dream of getting his grades for maths and English language at City College Plymouth.
From just £3 per week
Now the 60-year-old magazine seller has raised almost £300 for the college’s charitable effort by abseiling 114 feet down the side of the tower block while dressed in his signature red Big Issue tabard.
Clive, who is now taking a Level 3 course in theatre production and creative arts at the college, said: “I came back to college as an adult learner and I’ve never felt so included.
“My confidence is sky high and today I took on an abseil – something I have never done before, partly due to being terrified of heights.
“When I got up there I couldn’t even look over the edge without my stomach doing somersaults. But once I was fixed on the end of a rope I felt confident that I was alright.
