Sanford Aquaculture Manager Ted Culley raised over $10,000 for charity by abseiling down a Marlborough building.
Ted volunteered to be ‘dropped’ as part of the Drop Your Boss fundraiser for the Foundation of Youth Development.
FYD Marlborough regional manager Kelvin Watt said Ted was one of 17 local business leaders who raised a combined total of $21,000.
“Ted’s effort was outstanding, pretty incredible really,” Kelvin said.
The money Ted raised will be used to help establish the Marlborough Kiwi Can programme that teaches primary school kids essential life skills and values.
Kelvin said Sanford were strong supporters of the Kiwi Can programme around the country
