A daring sponsored abseil raised thousands of pounds for Wakefield Cathedral.

Around 25 people descended the cathedral on Saturday, including staff from homelessness organisation Wakefield Rent Deposit Scheme.

They were joined by Barbara Winston, manager of the Ridings Shopping Centre, and staff from Halifax Bank and Iris Restaurant. Organisers said the abseil raised up to £4,000. To see a video of the event log onto
