2016 marked the 140th birthday of the Mother’s Union. Midhurst & Easebourne branch leader Jane Simpson wanted to raise some money for the MU and rose to the challenge suggested by the vicar, Dave.
Dave’s suggestion was to abseil down Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth and on Sunday the 19th June 2016 Jane completed the challenge! Jane’s abseil was the fastest of the day – 100m in just 3 minutes.
Fearless Jane wasn’t nervous beforehand and wasn’t particularly bothered by the height. Jane was cheered on by a large group of family, friends from church and members of the Mother’s Union from across the diocese.
Jane has raised over £2000 for the Mother’s Union and has said a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who sponsored her. We are all really proud of her!
