Two things you need to know about me and this event:
1. I have abseiled down a building a fraction the size of Battersea Power Station and found it terrifying, i.e. this is a serious challenge for me!
2. Cancer Research UK is a cause I'm passionate about having seen so much loss caused by this horrible illness. I believe in the work CRUK does to find a cure and believe every penny counts!

Event details

Battersea Power Station Abseil

Taken from the Cancer Research UK website:"Walk through the old turbine hall, up the derelict staircase, onto the roof and take in the breathtaking views of the London skyline. Turning your back on the view and fixing your eyes on the huge, iconic chimneys, you’ll descend down the walls of Britain’s largest brick building."
