The ever-so-popular Lord Mayor’s Appeal Abseil Challenge returns to The Leadenhall Building for the second year running. The building, aka 'The Cheesegrater' is one of the tallest buildings in London standing at over 200 metres and the abseil will start from near the top of the building at level 47. The Abseil Challenge requires core muscle strength, a good sense of balance and the ability to control your nerves as you descend down this iconic building. A team of experts from Mile End Climbing Wall will be on hand to show you the ropes and the Abseil is open to everyone who is reasonably fit and healthy, no previous experience needed.
The Lord Mayor, Alderman Charles Bowman, will also be taking part in the Abseil himself along with Alderman & Sheriff Tim Hailes and Sheriff Neil Redcliffe who all look forward to seeing you there. They are scheduled to abseil around 11am. Should you wish to sponsor the Lord Mayor in his challenge you can do so through his JustGiving page here. Any donations will be gratefully received.
Registration for the Abseil Challenge has now closed. You are welcome to come and watch the abseil which will run all day from 8am until approx. 5.30pm on the East Wall of the building.
If you have any questions about the event please contact Pauliina Lyttinen, Events Manager at the Lord Mayor's Appeal, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 332 3464.
