London's Air Ambulance Helipad Abseil 2020

Event cancelled - gutted!

Absolutely gutted!

But please still consider either giving via this page or even better by giving a small amount regularly to help keep them running.

Next time I will do it and to fulfill the donations given so far, for which I am extremely grateful, and so will the air ambulance charity be too.

Official announcement:

Rapidly approaching

Less than 2 weeks to go and I think I'm looking forward to it...

Hopefully in 2 weeks the donations will have poured in to show how impressed you are that I succeeded even though I'll be in a flare up from such a big day!

Sense or less sensibility?

Some of you may have discussed this with me ages ago as one option for a challenge this year.
I think most of you said to look for something else, but it kept popping up and I've given it lots of thought.  I've also asked questions about practicalities on the day and decided to commit.
So please be generous and gift aid where possible.
Thanks in advance!

I'm fundraising for...

London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to London’s most seriously injured patients. Your donation will help save more lives by keeping the helicopter in the air and the rapid response cars on the road, ready for when they are needed most. By providing intervention as quickly as possible after injury, London’s Air Ambulance Charity aims to give patients the best chance of survival, and best quality of life, after trauma.

On Sunday 13th September, we need a team of fearless fundraisers to launch themselves from the highest rooftop helipad in Europe. Join the London's Air Ambulance Abseil Team and descend The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel from 17 floors up. The free hang aspect (no body contact with the wall!) only adds to the sense of exhilaration as you experience the East London skyline from a whole new angle.

Many of you will know that I've been an active first aider for much of my life and so while I haven't needed the service of the air ambulance, and hopefully never will, it is reassuring to know that it can be deployed around the city rapidly to provide treatment for much more serious incidents than the paramedics (who I have called on many times over the years) and if necessary provide surgery on the roadside.

You will also be aware that my physical health is very limited so I have taken advice and guidance on this.  It will be very challenging and I am fully aware it will take a week or so to recover but I hope that you will recognise this and so be extra generous!

Thank you to my Sponsors
