Fun for All the Family at Two Day Abseil Event

    • Charity Abseil Promo

There’s less than a month to go until Peterborough’s most exciting fundraising event takes place in the heart of the city centre.

Peterborough Cathedral, who’ve joined forces with city based charity Shine, will host more than 100 local thrillseekers as they attempt to conquer the iconic building, taking on a 150ft abseil down the 900 year old North West Tower.

Spectators will spot some familiar faces throughout the weekend, as the Cathedral’s own Dean, Rev’d Chris Dalliston goes head to head with Peterborough City Council chief executive Gillian Beasley on Friday morning.  Peterborough United mascot Peter Burrow and popular radio personality Kev Lawrence are also set to take part.

There’s a further treat in store for onlookers throughout Saturday as the Cathedral grounds play host to a traditional English country garden party, complete with market stalls, raffle and a big screen TV with live coverage of the royal wedding.

The event, which is raising funds to preserve the Cathedral and support families living with or affected by spina bifida, has been hugely popular with individuals and businesses alike, but it’s not too late to secure a place for you, or your team.

Registration costs £50 per person, and the charities suggest a minimum fundraising target of £250 with group targets available to corporate entrants.

As an extra incentive, the top two fundraisers will walk away with either a 10” Lenovo Yoga tablet or a 32gb Ipod Touch, generously donated by AA Accountants and Robert J Goodson Limited.
