Sponsored Ladder Climb 
On Thursday the 19th August Ed, Trina, Gary and Sam began four ascents of the the 165 foot tower and spire of St Mags. A fantastic crowd gathered (socially distant of course) to cheer and support and a fitting spotify playlist played. (Songs like the only way is up!)
All four reached the top and Sam prayed for the town and the bay. We raised the money needed fon the day, however any money given beyond the total needed for the plaster work and cooker hood will be used so that we can continue being hospitable throughout the week to some of the most vulnerable in our town, to young families and to the wider church community, as we restart after covid. If you would like to sponsor us follow the link here and in the drop down box, choose the "Ladder Climb donation" option. https://stmags.churchsuite.co.uk/donate Thank you so much so all your suport. Sam.
