Pupils at Pakefield Primary School cheered out as a group of 10 teachers and staff, including headteacher Martyn Payne, could be seen making their way down the outside of the 60ft tower of All Saints and St Margaret’s.

The first of the 32 fund-raising abseilers was Alan Bagge, 77 and who has one arm. He was then followed by his 11-year-old grandson Alfie Wright and his daughter Christine Bagge, 45.

Other abseilers included Terese Ogogo, mother of boxer Anthony, The Rector of All Saints and St Margaret’s Canon Bob Baker and Rev Mark Capron, the Curate of Pakefield and Carlton Colville with Mutford.

Money raised will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and to Pakefield Church to help fund its summer holiday club for 100 children, Messy Church and Tuesday children’s clubs.
