Burnham-On-Sea MP scales the heights of church to raise funds!

Burnham-On-Sea's MP showed she has a head for heights when she abseiled down the outside of a local church to help it raise funds at the weekend.

Tessa Munt abseiled from the top of Priddy Church's tower on Sunday (August 12th) before taking a zip wire ride.

It is hoped that the event, which was held in aid of church repairs, has raised several hundred pounds for the building.

Tessa told "This is a fun way to raise a little money for a local cause and I wish Priddy Church all the best with their fundraising efforts."

"I abseiled down Cheddar Gorge last year, which was fantastic. The view from the top of Priddy Church tower was also spectacular."

The Grade I listed church dates from the 13th century, with some rebuilding in the 15th century. It was restored in 1881–88.
