Hugh Jackman abseils for Help for Heroes

The Australian star of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' yesterday showed his support for Help for Heroes by abseiling down the eight storeys of the Sun's building, a height of more than 100 feet. His sister served in British Intelligence in Iraq.

The team he abseiled with, including Royal Marines and Sun newspaper staff, raised £25000 for the charity. They were joined by a chicken or at least someone dressed in a chicken outfit – the Sun's Defence Editor, Tom Newton Dunn.

Help for Heroes is aiming to raise £20 million to fund seven rehabilitation centres for wounded troops to recover, retrain and adjust to a different way of living.
