Looking for a new challenge? Are you brave enough to abseil one of the tallest buildings in London?
Three charities are looking for volunteers to take on the 33-storey high Broadgate Tower on Friday 16th, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September this weekend. (And if you haven't got a head for heights, come along and show your support for our brave volunteers and help to raise much-needed funds for three incredible charities).
1. LandAid – 9am on Friday 16th September
Test your strength, speed and nerves of steel this September as the London TowerAthlon returns to the Broadgate Tower. For a third year, LandAid and the Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors bring you an assault course with a difference.
In teams of three you'll take on a gruelling 10-minute cycle sprint, a fierce 977-stair climb and a 500-foot abseil and help to raise money for new accommodation in the City of London for 146 young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming so.
