Abseil Dare Devils Wanted for Historic Fundraiser

Action for Children is on the look out for dare devils in Cambridge to make history on Saturday 24 September, and abseil down Great St. Mary’s Church to raise cash for vulnerable children, young people and families.

The event is the first time a fundraising abseil has been held at the church in its 600 year history and will see thrill seekers abseil 114 foot down the church tower. To take part it will cost just £20 with entrants asked to raise a further £100 in sponsorship money.

The abseil will take place from 10am to 4pm and no previous experience is required as all entrants will receive full training on the day.

Laura Hanratta, Action for Children Area Fundraiser, said: “This is the first time anyone’s been given permission to hold an event like this at Great St. Mary’s Church and we urge thrill seekers to sign up. It’s a hugely famous landmark that I know is familiar to locals so we’re delighted to offer them the chance to abseil down it! It’ll be an amazing achievement and we just hope participants get chance to enjoy the view!”
