Leap of Faith!

Full of admiration this morning for one of the first of what is expected to be one hundred people who will be abseiling from the 49-metre tower of Bath Abbey to raise money for good causes.

The tower is 49 metres high.

In what definitely can be called a ‘leap of faith’ – though it is very safely controlled – the aim is to raise £20,000 to be split between the Genesis Trust – which supports vulnerable and homeless people – and the Abbey’s Footprint Project.

Here’s one of the fundraisers at the start of his way down.
