A Charity Abseil at Octavia Livings Elizabeth House with both Octavia and Willmott Dixon staff taking the plunge was a hot event....literally.
Roped to the roof in baking 30 degrees and kneeling over the edge on melting roof felt for four hours. Not your normal Saturday, but witnessing the looks of fear then achievement on everyone's face (well nearly everyone's) kept me going. They all managed to overcome their fears with even a few children of the staff bravely taking the plunge.
The views across Wembley were dramatic, and the view down onto the London city traffic 130' below was also not for those with acrophobia.
Apologies to Rachel, but the cheesy nervous grin just makes me smile when I see it and I had to put it in! ;0)
Again a big well done to all those who were both involved in setting up the event and those participating.
