Matt Crowcombe co-founded the charity SOS Africa with a school teacher during his gap year to South Africa in 2003 to fund the education and care of underprivileged township children. SOS Africa is unique in that it guarantees that 100% of all funds raised are invested in the education of the children we support. They have received a large amount of support from the Shepton community in recent years and are very excited about setting up offices and a shop in the centre of town this month. Details about the charity can be found here: www.sosafrica.com.
SOS Africa is inviting teams of 6 abseilers to the event to raise funds for the SOS Africa children. Information about the event; www.sosafrica.com. Their aim is to involve around 200 abseilers in the event.
To enter a team of 6 all you need to do is:
1. Email them the 'African Themed' team name. firstname.lastname@example.org
2. The preferred abseil times (between 9am and 5pm on Saturday 29th/Sunday 30th).
3. Post a £60 deposit per team to: SOS Africa, PO BOX 4073, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 9AG.
4. Email the team leaders postal address/contact number - they will then post you a fundraising pack shortly.
