124ft Freefall Charity Abseil from Wells Cathedral

Team photo

This autumn, Shepton Mallet based charity, SOS Africa, is organising its toughest, largest and longest fundraising event to date; a 124ft freefall abseil from the North West Tower of the iconic Wells Cathedral in Somerset.

Popularly known as “one of the most beautiful English cathedrals” with a history dating back to the 12thCentury, the Cathedral Staff have generously granted SOS Africa and abseil specialists Aardvark Endeavours the opportunity to organise this exciting one-off event to raise funds for SOS Africa and Wells Cathedral.

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. But before they take the plunge, they will be able to savour breath-taking views from across the Somerset Levels to Glastonbury Tor and beyond! When they touchdown safely at the base of the tower they will have secured vital reading support for another child in South Africa and raised invaluable funds for the upkeep of the Cathedral.

To register for this one-off event, please visit: https://www.sosafrica.com/wellscathedralabseil

Thank you for your support!
