SOS Africa Charity Abseil Event

Saturday 28th September

09:00 - 17:00

Local charity, SOS Africa, is organising its toughest, largest and longest fundraising event to date; a 124ft freefall abseil from the Cathedral’s North West Tower! From Friday 27th September to Saturday 5th October 2019 from 9am to 6pm (excluding Sunday), brave participants from across the country dressed as their favourite characters from children’s books will climb the 262 steps to the top of the tower (the height of 9 giraffes to be precise) and freefall abseil from a cantilever platform assembled on the tower roof. How to Participate: The event is being run by SOS Africa. Abseilers (minimum age 10, maximum weight 17 stone) are required to pay a deposit to cover instructor’s fees. Once registered, they are required to raise a minimum of £100 per person before completing their abseil. To enter, individuals or team leaders should do the following: Email Team Leader Info (name, email & postal address), Team Members names & email addresses and preferred abseil date / time to sosafrica.. Transfer deposits (Adults: £20 / U16s: £15) using your individuals or team name as a reference to: SOS Africa, 40-47-28, 32032554. SOS Africa will then email to confirm registration, abseil date / time and provide an online fundraising page address within 24 hours. This is a one-off event and places will be limited so, we recommend signing up and sending your deposit as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
