A charity fundraiser for the London Air Ambulance offers the chance to launch yourself off the top of a helipad mounted 17 floors up on top of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.

It’s a free hang aspect abseil – which means no body contact with the wall.

The abseil takes place in September, which will give you enough time to raise the minimum £300 that is needed to participate.

There’s a £40 registration fee, and to register and for more information, go here.

The abseils will take place between Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th September 2023 — if you’re in the area and wondering why people are being lowered from the roof by a rope.

No previous experience is required to take part. All participants will be provided with appropriate safety equipment and a full safety briefing, which will take place before you make the descent. All participants must be at least 18 years of age to take part in the abseil.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
