Liverpool Duo Abseil down Liverpool Cathedral to Raise Money for Nugent Care

A 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 Merseyside.”

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.
