Intrepid volunteers aim high for Sefton 4 Good
A Sefton charity has been aiming high with its latest major fundraising project.
A team of 11 brave volunteers abseiled down the outside of the main entrance of Liverpool Cathedral and raised more than £1,000 for Sefton 4 Good.
Team members who took on the 150-foot free-fall drop in wet and windy conditions
included Sefton CVS, Sefton Council and members of the public.
Sefton 4 Good was established by Sefton CVS in 2013 to make it easier for borough
residents and businesses to support local good causes by giving their money, resources, time and skills.
Money raised is distributed via a grant scheme which is particularly aimed at smaller
organisations, or collaborative projects that include small groups.
Sefton’s Head of Commissioning Support & Business Intelligence Peter Moore along with Head of Regulation & Compliance Jill Coule, Daniel Longman and Adam Blackwel took it in turns to abseil down the iconic city cathedral.
Sefton 4 Good Co-ordinator, Mike Howlett, commented:
“This event was a completely new venture for us, so we’re very pleased at how it went and that so many people supported the team and helped us raise a very significant sum for our charity.
“We’re especially grateful to the intrepid volunteers who actually completed the abseil. This was always going to be a very daunting challenge for them, but it was made even more difficult by the far from ideal conditions on the day.”
