Charterhouse looking for volunteers for Guy’s Hospital sponsored abseil

Local charity Charterhouse-in-Southwark is looking for volunteers to follow the example of Simon Hughes and sign up to take part in an abseil down Guy's Hospital Tower on 23 June, to help raise money for the vital work the charity does in the borough.

The MP for North Southwark and Bermondsey is one of 35 daredevils who have already signed up for the event, from which the Crosby Row-based charity hopes to raise 15,000.

Sandra Hesketh, spokesperson for the charity, said: "Here's your chance to do something adventurous while raising money for a fantastic cause. No experience is required, so if you're not afraid of heights and like getting a thrill while doing some good, we'd love to hear from you."

Charterhouse-in-Southwark has worked with the residents of North Southwark for over 115 years. Its services include a Young People's Centre; a befriending scheme for vulnerable people; counselling and family support; advice and advocacy; support for carers; a play project and toy library; health promotion work with the local Asian community; domiciliary care and community education.

If you want to take part in the abseil or receive information about the work of Charterhouse-in-Southwark please contact Sandra Hesketh on 020 7357 7733 or email her on [email protected]">[email protected]
