A huge thank you. Don’t look down!

Climb the 249 steps to the roof of Guildford Cathedral, and you’ll enjoy wonderful panoramic views across the city and the Surrey countryside 160 feet below. Unless your name is Sam Farrow, that is!

On Saturday 26 April, I abseiled from the roof’s highest point to help raise the £7m needed to equip this wonderful building for the 21st Century. In particular, the acoustic plaster in the ceiling vaults urgently needs replacing: without this vital restoration work, the Cathedral – the last to be built in England – may be forced to close.

I’m pleased to report I reached terra firma safely: no undergarments were harmed in the making of this epic descent.

A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who’s donated so far – and if you haven’t (or forgot) it’s not too late! You can donate online at

I will be splitting the monies raised between the Cathedral, and our ‘house’ charity here at Farrow Creative, Disability Challengers –
