SOS Africa Abseil

Have you ever abseiled the height of ten giraffes?

Following a highly successful abseil down Kilver Court Viaduct last year, SOS Africa will be hosting a similar ‘African themed’ event down the historic Cranmore Tower this summer on the 29th/30th September.

SOS Africa is a small charity which was founded by Matt Crowcombe, former Hazlegrove and King’s Bruton pupil, to fund the education of township children to enable them to break the poverty cycle.  The charity guarantees that 100% of all donations go to the children.

This latest abseil is a unique opportunity for groups and individuals to do something amazing for charity whilst having great fun with family and friends at the same time. It is also an ideal team building exercise for local businesses!

Why not make it a family day-out? Feel free to bring friends and family along to the event to witness your daredevil deeds!  The tower is set in wonderful surroundings and it is the ideal venue for a family picnic.  We also hope to have refreshments on sale. If your friends are not as adventurous as you, do not despair; there will also be time set aside for individuals to abseil.
For an added challenge why not come in fancy dress? It is a great opportunity to gain your business coverage in the local press or just get yourselves a bit more attention in the pub afterwards! There will be a prize for the best dressed group. A prize will also be awarded to the group that raises the most money for SOS Africa. There is pride at stake, as local pubs, businesses and friends compete to become the ultimate ‘African Abseilers’. So whether you are a larey lion, a cheeky chimp, a cranky croc, a menacing meerkat or a prickly porcupine, you can be a hero for an underprivileged township child this summer!
