Emmaus Gloucestershire companion, John, completed a 220ft abseil challenge on Friday 7 September 2018 to help raise money to build new rooms in Emmaus communities across the UK.

John joined over 30 other people to take on the Emmaus UK #DropFromTheTop abseil challenge. The event saw Emmaus staff, companions and supporters from across the UK descend 220ft down the Holiday Inn Express in Birmingham city centre. 

The current fundraising total of over £8,000 will go towards building new rooms in Emmaus communities for people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion.
