Abseil from St Mary's Church, Bruton

This autumn, why not face your fears and take on Somerset Charity SOS Africa's latest fundraising event challenge? On the 13th 14th and 15th October 2017 local individuals, schools, businesses and community groups will be invited to abseil from the top of St Mary’s Church Tower (the height of 7 giraffes to be exact) to raise funds for an SOS Africa Education Project of their choice.

St Mary's Church has a vast history spanning back to the 12th Century; its largest tower is over 100ft (32m) tall and houses the oldest bell in Somerset. On a cloudless day (fingers crossed) participants will enjoy a fantastic view across the town and surrounding areas. Since 2011, SOS Africa has organised charity abseil fundraising events from iconic landmarks across the UK including a Sponsored Abseil from Glastonbury Festival's Pyramid Stage in 2014 which raised over £40,000.

To participate, each abseiler is required to pay a deposit (Adults: £15 / U16s: £10) to cover instructor’s fees and fundraise for SOS Africa (Individuals: £50 / Team of 6: £300). Please email info@sosafrica.com or call 01749344197 if you require further information.
