Take on charity abseil down the tower of St Mary’s Parish Church for Kidz Come 1st
Time is running out for volunteers to sign up for a charity abseil to raise money for a children's charity.
Volunteers will have the chance to get a unique bird’s eye view of Watford town centre as they abseil from the tower of St Mary’s Parish Church.
One hundred abseilers are needed for the charity stunt being organised by the children’s charity Kidz Come 1st on Saturday, September 21.
McDonalds fast food restaurant in Watford has thrown down the gauntlet to other businesses by signing up 10 members of staff for the event.
Volunteers need to pay a £25 refundable deposit, though everyone taking part is asked to raise a minimum of £200 for the charity.
Abseilers will be waved away by the town’s elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, and there will be a buffet and soft drinks for everyone once they get back down to terra firma.
Kidz Come 1st is a national charity raising money to help support sick children with limited life expectancy.
Cash raised during the abseil will go towards its fund for holiday homes to offer respite care for the sick children and their families.
Many of the children already being supported by Kidz Come 1st will be attending the abseil.
To sign up for the event, or register an interest, call Yasmin on 07957 970790 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
