Head of Campaigns to take on winter abseil challenge

On Saturday 1 November 2014, the University of Kent’s Head of Campaigns, Hilary Edridge, will be taking part in the Winter Abseil Challenge organised by the KM Charity Team to raise money for the Kent Law Campaign.

The challenge will see Hilary (Hils) abseiling down the new Premier Inn, a five-storey building, in Canterbury on a winter’s morning and we ask that you support her in this exciting event.  She has set herself a fundraising target of £2,000 and would be most grateful if you would sponsor her to help her reach her goal.

About the challenge, Hilary said, “As Head of the Campaign I have set my target high, but with the help of my friends, family, colleagues and other supporters we could make a measurable difference and help close the gap on the remainder of the money needed for our new law clinic building.  This year we have worked hard to achieve our campaign goal and getting to this point has taken a lot of hard work by a lot of people. It’s now my turn to personally step up and abseil gracefully down a multi-storey building in Canterbury.”

Whilst this is not a challenge for those without a head for heights, Hilary is looking for people to join her team and urges you to sign up to join her!  If you would like to take part it is just £12 to register via the KM Charity website.
