GKL GROUP & O&H HAMPTON ARE PLEASED TO HAVE RAISED OVER £3500
GKL Group & O&H Hampton are pleased to have raised over £3500 in support of the Peterborough Cathedral 900th anniversary campaign. James Brackenbury (GKL) Joe Clarke (GKL) Derek Vincent (GKL) Neil Hawkridge (GKL) Roger Tallowin (O&H) Jeff Manners (O&H) Tom Wollard (O&H) Liz Male (O&H) all took part in the abseil, thankfully without incident on Friday 8th July 2016!
The “HamptonHeights” team made the 150ft 'freefall abseil' with the help of Peterborough Cathedral’s team and enjoyed stunning views of the city centre, all parties were especially pleased to help the Cathedral raise funds and support this incredible, historic site that makes up so much of Peterborough’s story. Over 240 people from across the city supported the event including a Bishop, Canon, one gorilla, one giant rabbit, Spiderman and a minion all daredevils made it safely down. Derbyshire Mountain Rescue were on hand to support all of the volunteers.
James Brackenbury from GKL Group went on to say “It was an incredible experience and a great way to spend time with colleagues and long term partners from O&H, well done to Rachael Church and the Cathedral team for putting on such a fantastic event and allowing us to show our support”.
The Peterborough 900 Campaign has already begun to develop new facilities for education, visitors, music and worship which will help Peterborough Cathedral to sustain its work into the future. But there is a huge amount of work still required to fulfil its plans, and lots more money needed. Rachael Church went on to thank O&H Hampton & GKL Group.
“Together (O&H & GKL Group) wanted to raise £2,000 for the Cathedral's 900th anniversary campaign and in-fact raised over £3,500 which is simply incredible and will help ensure the Cathedrals future for the next 900 years, everybody was great fun and I think really enjoyed the day this type of support says a lot about Peterborough and it’s community”
