Letter - Thanks to abseilers

MAY I take this opportunity through your paper to thank the Wakefield Express editor Mark Bradley and all those who took part in the Cathedral Abseil last Saturday.

There was a marvellous spread of people from all over Wakefield. It was a great occasion, and will have raised well over £5,000 towards the Cathedral Development Project 2013.

Thank you also to all who sponsored them.

Of course, the abseil would not be possible without the skill and dedication of our friends from the 299 Parachute Squadron Royal Engineers. We are as ever immensely grateful to them all.

The Very Rev Jonathan Greener

Dean of Wakefield
