In a moment of complete madness I have signed up to abseil down the recently completed 'Shard' tower in London to raise money for The Outward Bound Trust. This is a really great charity that does amazing work by encouraging young people to realise their potential through learning in the wild. I am certainly in need of encouragement to realise my potential, and having a slight fear of heights, I am quite apprehensive about the challenge, however it should be exciting and fulfilling (once I'm over the edge). I'd really appreciate your support in any and all ways possible. George

The Descent of Shard - by invitation only

Soaring to 310m above the ground, The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe, justly celebrated for its elegant architecture and elevation that delivers the most commanding views of London.

Before this extraordinary building opens to the public in early 2013, a small group of people are being given the unique opportunity to abseil from the pinnacle of The Shard in aid of charity. They will be trained by The Outward Bound Trust, supported by the Royal Marines, and guaranteed an exhilarating and utterly memorable experience.

Together, this small group of people will raise a landmark sum for two charities dedicated to helping those facing personal and physical challenges: The Outward Bound Trust and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

Glad to hear that you have survived this self-imposed stress test. Hopefully the next few months of Cluff Geothermal will be even more exciting! Best wishes Christopher
