Local fundraisers Mary Miller, Amanda Pink, William Race and Ben Shardlow took life into their own hands and abseiled down St Mary Magdalen Church in the centre of Oxford on Saturday 7th March to help raise funds for Christian Aid.
This was the third year that Christian Aid have held the abseil event in Oxford. Over the past two years, more than 60 people have successfully made it down the tower, ranging in age from 11 to 85, and together they have raised more than £17,000 for some of the world's poorest communities.
This year, our local heroes raised over £2,000 which is a truly impressive achievement.
It's not too late to chip in, if you'd like to. You can add to Amanda and Mary's fund through their Just Giving website or through the local churches. Alternatively, or in addition, you can sponsor William and Ben through their dedicated MoneyGiving website.
Please donate whatever you can for this extremely worthy cause.
