At Last news from the intrepid pair!

Aspirational fundraising has literally now reached new heights in relation to St Alban's 'Vault' development.

The latest adrenaline-filled initiative was successfully completed by Father Lameck and Georgina Blackhurst on Friday 10 July.

Their challenge comprised a 'Zip Wire' flight of 1 mile in length. So innovative is this new 'thrill' that it has already been featured on the BBC One Show and can also be viewed on YouTube.

The fearless pair winged their way across the disused Penrhyn Slate Quarry in Snowdonia at speeds of up to 100mph.

"Fantastic day, perfect weather and a great sense of achievement. To date our 'leap of faith ' has raised an amazing £2,250 .Thank you all so very much!" comments Father Lameck (now he is back on terra firma).

Still time to dig deep and sponsor our worthy celebrities. Sponsorship Forms are available at The Post Office, Alison's and within the Parish News or you can access their 'Leap of Faith' JustGiving page by "CLICKING HERE" — . A safe take-off and landing achieved!

Respect!!!!
