CHRISTIAN AID NEED more supporters to join clergy and others in signing up for an abseil down Guildford Cathedral to raise money for the worldâ€™s poorest communities.
The Week, with a strapline â€˜For a life Free from Fearâ€™ will see fundraisers face their own fear and tackle the 160ft drop down the tower on Saturday 17 May.
Several people from the diocese are already committed, including a trio of clergy from the Joint Churches of Chiddingfold â€“ the Revd Sarah Brough (St Maryâ€™s C of E), Fr Chris Benyon (St Teresa of Avila RC) and the Revd Ian Oâ€™Herlihy (Chiddingfold Baptist Church).
Sarah said: â€œItâ€™s no exaggeration to say Iâ€™m quite terrified, but itâ€™s so important to put ourselves out of our comfort zones for those who are powerless and face uncertainty and conflict in their everyday lives.
â€œPlease come and join me and we can face our fears together while raising funds for an excellent cause!â€
Abseilers must be 11 or over and able to raise a minimum sponsorship of Â£100.
To sign up or for more details contact Christian Aidâ€™s regional coordinator for Surrey, Laura Mead on 0207 523 2110 or email LMead@christian-aid.org
