A quick note if you are the sort of person to do these sorts of things, but there is a chance to abseil down the side of the new 17-story high Royal London Hospital building in Whitechapel later this month.
As is usual with these things, it’s a charity fund raiser, and the choice of building for the event is most apt as the charity in question is the big red helicopter on the roof of the building you might end up climbing down.
To enter simply fill out the registration form, pay the £35 fee — then you need to raise £300 at a minimum.
Also note that only 50% of your total sponsorship amount has to be collected by the Abseil date, you will have up to 6 weeks after your abseil to collect the rest of your sponsorship amount.
The Air Ambulance is a rather worthy charity, and are also in the process of expanding south of the river, with a plans for a helicopter platform on the roof of King’s College Hospital in Denmark Hill. At the moment, they land in the nearby park and run up the hill.
