Proceeds from abseil and teddy zipwire will be split between the Otter Valley Federation, the Melanesian Mission and Feniton Parish Church.

Thrillseekers flocked to Feniton to take part in a 50ft charity abseil down the village’s church tower.

More than 20 took part in the abseil last Saturday at St Andrew’s Church.

Children were also able to bring their cuddly toys for a teddy zipwire from the church tower.

Money raised from the event will be split between the Otter Valley Federation - Feniton and Tipton St John Primary Schools - the Melanesian Mission and Feniton parish church.

The abseil was organised by Feniton Primary School and the Melanesian Mission UK. The money raised is still being counted.
