CrossReach CEO in Fundraising Bridge Abseil



                                                                                                          Wednesday February 11 2020

THE chief executive of CrossReach is to join a team of fundraisers in a charity abseil in May which will help raise funds for the social care council of the Church of Scotland.

Viv Dickenson will abseil from the Forth Bridge in a unique charity event organised by the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, courtesy of Network Rail and Balfour Beatty.

She will follow in the footsteps of former Moderators of the  General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Very Rev Dr John Chalmers and the Very Rev Dr Russell Barr and her CrossReach predecessor Peter Bailey, who raised over £11,000 for CrossReach when each of them abseiled from the historic bridge in 2017.

Registration for the event is now open at When registering select CrossReach.
