2010 Abseilers do CAFOD proud

(l-r) Gareth, Patrick, Amy, David and Emma

In a muddy field in deepest Essex … our abseilers bravely climbed the Harlow Water Tower to make their descent.

Despite wet and windy conditions, Amy, Emma, David, Gareth and Patrick climbed the 110 steps.

No hanging around for Patrick!

Year 12 students from Ilford Ursuline, Emma and Amy took a break from revising for their AS exams to raise money for CAFOD by joining the abseil, and David (20) from Basildon has recently recovered from a brain tumour – and wanted the adrenaline rush from abseiling! Parish Volunteer from Grays, Patrick, took everything in his stride and was totally relaxed. Fellow Grays parishioners, Howard and Joanna, also took part in the abseil on Saturday. Pupils from St Peter’s Primary School, Dagenham, challenged Gareth to do the abseil – well done Sir!
