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.

Oliver Felstenstein beat me at golf and whoever lost had to donate to a charity of the winners choosing. To lose to Oliver was a sad moment in the Jessop household but the money is going to a good cause which makes it all the easier to take.
