Do you have nerves of steel? If so, you can take part in a 150 foot abseil down the front of Peterborough Cathedral.
Having ascended the ancient spiral staircase within the great North West Tower and taken in the breath-taking views across the City, participants will clip in and descend the 150 foot vertical drop, cheered on by friends, family and colleagues (watching from a safe distance) below. Derby Mountain Rescue will be on hand to safely guide the proceedings. This activity is certainly not for the faint hearted!
The event is being held to raise money for both the Cathedral and the Peterborough-based charity ‘Shine’, which provides specialist support for people affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus – complex conditions affecting movement, learning and health.
Prices: £50 (plus a booking fee). Entrants can book via www.cathedralabseil.com and must be at least 16 years old to take part. Participants are also encouraged to raise a minimum of £250 to support the two worthy causes – prizes will be awarded to the top fundraisers.
