For charity of course, but later this month there’s a chance to climb over the top of the Cheesegrater skyscraper in the City of London and abseil down the side.

At 730 feet high, the Cheesegrater skyscraper, officially the Leadenhall Building, is the third-tallest building in the City of London, after 22 Bishopsgate and the Salesforce Tower.

The abseiling event takes place at the end of this month and is a charity fundraiser for Demelza, which provides hospice care for children with terminal illnesses.

There is naturally therefore a fundraising target to reach.

Entry is £50 per person, and you need to be able to raise at least £550 per person (£500 if in a group of four).

Entrants need to be over 16 years — all the details for how to abseil down one of London’s tallest buildings are here.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
