Waltham Abbey Church Charity Abseil - Sat 1st October 2011

Author: Nicola Jarmaine Published: 27th September 2011 21:22
Would you like to take up the challenge to abseil down the Church Tower?

Abbey Independent Funeral Directors on Market Square and Waltham Abbey Church are offering the unique opportunity of abseiling down the Church Tower to anyone who wishes to take up the challenge!

A few places remain after the Saturday 16th July 2011 event had to be cancelled due to severe weather conditions and only a small number of people had the chance to abseil down Abbey Church Tower that day.

There will be almost a 100 people taking part in the Charity Abseil event - will you join them on Saturday 1st October 2011?

Rev Peter Smith abseiling down Waltham Abbey Church TowerThe cost is just £18 registration fee deposit each to participate (however, this sum can be recovered from the sum raised if desired) and you can choose the charity you wish to fundraise for or donate all to Waltham Abbey Church (50% of all money raised will go to the church and 50% to a charity of the participant's choice).

Please tell colleagues, friends, family and neighbours about this event and encourage them to take part - it could be more fun and supportive to participate in a group.

Please note there is a minimum age of 11 years - last time this event was held the ages ranged from 11 to 79!  There is no upper age limit, however, people over 60 years old wishing to participate are recommeded to consult with their doctor before reserving their place.
