Kicking off the Lord Mayor’s Appeal fundraising events after the summer holidays the annual Lord Mayor’s Appeal Abseil Challenge took place on Friday 8th September at The Leadenhall Building. The event saw the Lord Mayor, joined by almost 100 other daredevils primarily from City businesses and livery companies, abseiling down from level 47 to the ground on the East wall of the building. The event was kindly supported by Reignwood Group.
The Leadenhall Building, commonly known as The Cheesegrater on account of its distinctive sloping profile, is the tallest building in the City of London at 224 metres (736 ft).
The brave participants included Lawson Muncaster, Managing Director and Co-Founder of City A.M., Kathryn McDowell, Managing Director of the London Symphony Orchestra and Clare Duckworth, sub-Principal first violin and vice Chair of the Orchestra as well as the Master of Worshipful Company of Lightmongers, Master of Worshipful Company of Actuaries and Master of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers.
