A brave Melton employee abseiled down Peterborough Cathedral with 12 of her company colleagues in aid of charity.

The daring team from chartered accountants Duncan & Toplis included Alison Green, who works in the company’s Melton office. Others were from the firm’s Grantham, Stamford, Boston, Skegness, Lincoln and Sleaford offices.

Under the watchful eye of an experienced team from Derby Mountain Rescue, they ascended the spiral staircase of the west front before emerging within the hollow stone spire of the north-west tower for the 150-foot descent.

So far the courageous team has raised just over £1,500 for the cathedral’s Peterborough 900 Campaign, a fundraising drive which has been established to coincide with the cathedral’s 900th anniversary in 2018.

Tom Hindmarch, director at Duncan & Toplis based in Stamford, said: “This was a great event and it was inspiring to see such a tremendous team effort being made from across the company.

“It is a spectacular building and we were pleased to be able to get involved in contributing towards sustaining its future.”

Joining in with the fun was Duncan & Toplis’ sister company Datcom’s Andy Maddison.
