Christian Aid have organised a charity abseil on Wednesday 15th June at St Barnabas Church in Gloucester. The charity, best known for their work fighting poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries were founded in the 1940’s, spurred on by the aftermath of World War 2. Their aims are to make the world an equal place to live for all, free from poverty and suffering. They help those in need, regardless of religion, ethnicity or nationality. During the month of March, the charity organised fund raising abseils in locations across the country, including Leicester, Leeds and Manchester. On Wednesday 15th June, they are travelling to Gloucester to abseil 100ft down the St Barnabas Church tower. They are urging anyone and everyone to get involved. You have to be 16 or over, registration is £15 and there is a minimum sponsorship of £30. When you sign up, you will receive an exclusive Christian Aid t-shirt, a sponsorship page and sponsorship forms and personal support from the Events Fundraising Team from the day you sign up. The charity is keen to express the extent to which the money will make a difference. They understand they cannot eradicate poverty entirely, but with events such as this, the charity is well on its way to making a difference.
