Abseil down South Norfolk church tower to end poverty 

On Saturday July 20th lots of people will be abseiling down the 110 ft high tower of St Mary’s Church in Redenhall, South Norfolk to raise money for Christian Aid and the challenge is out for people in Norfolk to volunteer and have a go.


Julian Bryant, Christian Aid Regional Coordinator says, ’This abseil is a great challenge event for people to do something to make a difference to people living in poverty. When we have done this before, people have thoroughly enjoyed doing it and felt a sense of accomplishment.
People book in by paying £20 via Eventbrite and then will have a sponsorship target of £100.  We will send out a fundraising pack when we get the £20. The minimum age is 10 years of age and there is no maximum age. In fact we have had people in their 80’s doing this before. So please book in as an individual, couple, family, group and take part in this mini-adventure to make a difference!’
Ash, from St Francis Church in Heartsease has already signed in to do the abseil in Redenhall. She says,’ "I never realised how many projects Christian Aid had, on top of giving aid during disasters. Now I want to give back and help them continue their amazing work, by participating and going over the edge for poverty! Absolutely excited to take on this challenge!"
The abseil itself is managed by a specialist company which has conducted many of these events.
