Team leader of our Aldershot recycling facility, Pepe Bytyqi, has faced his fear of heights by abseiling 160ft down Guildford Cathedral!
Pepe agreed to the challenge to raise money for Guildford County School, which his daughter attends. The school is fundraising for a new indoor full-size sports hall on its Farnham Road site.
Pepe said: “I really don’t like heights but I just couldn’t say no to the school. The tipping point off the roof of the cathedral was terrifying but the rest of the descent wasn’t too bad.
“I managed to raise £510, which includes a £250 donation from Chambers. Big thanks to all my very kind sponsors.”
Pepe has now caught the abseiling bug and is planning his next mission, again in aid of the school. This time it will be down Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth – which is over double the height of Guildford Cathedral!
