Here’s one relaxed abseiler on a previous charity event at the cathedral. It really looks like fun.

The money raised will go to the Leg Ulcer Charity, a one-of-a kind charity which aims to empower those suffering from leg ulcers – approximately 500,000 people across the UK – giving them the knowledge to understand their condition and to know what to ask for to get a cure if possible – and if not, to find out why not.
