Mr Schultz abseiled from the roof of his council’s six-storey Stopford House headquarters to help raise funds for Age Concern’s winter warmth campaign.
The so-called 'leap of faith' was part of Stockport’s wider drive to raise awareness about energy efficiency help available to vulnerable people in the borough.
Mr Schultz said that the funds raised would go towards providing fleece blankets, portable heaters, hand warmers, and room thermometers for the residents who needed them most.
He said: “The ‘Kill the Chill’ Winter Warmth fund-raising campaign is an excellent idea, focused on helping the borough’s most vulnerable people during the cold winter months.
"I was only too happy to get involved and take part in the abseil event and was delighted to see so many others joining in.”
