Liverpool Duo Abseil down Liverpool Cathedral in Memory of Friend to Raise
Money for Nugent Care
team of brave daredevils abseiled 301ft down Liverpool's landmark Anglican
Cathedral to raise over £3,000 for Merseyside based charity Nugent Care.
The team of 20 included Reverend Deacon Ken Holding, husband and wife team Phil
and Liz Jackson and also friends Simon and Paul, who decided to tackle the
challenge in memory of their friend Ged who would have celebrated his 43rd
birthday on the day of the abseil.
Liverpool taxi driver Simon said:- "We wanted to spend Ged's birthday
doing something he would have approved of as he always loved a challenge and to
raise money at the same time felt like a positive way to mark the day. We know
Ged would be proud."
Reverend Deacon Ken Holding said:- "Knowing our trip down the Cathedral
has contributed towards £3,000 for Nugent Care feels wonderful. It is a
fantastic local cause that does a lot of good in our local communities in
All funds raised will go to Nugent Care's Creative Vision project, which
supports people affected by sight loss. In its 134 year history, Nugent Care has
supported thousands of vulnerable children and adults across Merseyside and the
North West, and provides them with residential, educational and community care.
