Fourfront scale Londons Broadgate Tower

On Saturday 92 brave souls abseiled 540ft down Broadgate Tower in London to help raise £42,000 for Shooting Star CHASE Children's Hospices.

The team of fundraisers included members from across Fourfront Group and also representatives from sponsors, business partners and friends. In groups of three, fears of heights were quashed and even the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits as volunteers made the 33 floor descent. A team of supporters, a Fullers Brewery Bar and Freebird Burrito stall greeted the adventurers as they planted their feet firmly and safely back on terra firma at Broadgate Plaza.

Of course, amongst the day’s abseiling heroes were our own Fourfront team members Owen Thomas, Matthew Priest, Jason Whiteley, Chris Claydon, Ana Censi, Cecilia Gad and Ben Murray. They were joined by colleagues from across each of our businesses and included Sion Davies, Richard Briggs, Hayley Cloke, Mark Bradburn, James Hamerton, James Saunders, Sam House, Justin Lewis, Grant Millea, Simon Tilley, Karen Unwin, Angelia Liard, Charlie Beamish, Kayleigh Tse, Lucy Miksa, Martin Jacks, Alexandra Marrs, Colin Pye, Sonia Crozier, Daniel Barreiro, Ryan Morgan, Peter Taylor, Rachael Hunter, Lucy Miksa, Tim Wythe, Daren Bannister, Tracey Holland, Mike McKeown, Danielle Ridout and Neil Edmundson.

Clive Lucking, Chief Executive at Fourfront Group comments: “We have supported Shooting Star CHASE for five years now, and have recently passed the £150,000 mark. We are always looking for the next big adventure to help raise funds for this fantastic charity and after last year’s charity skydive we had to tackle something of this magnitude to continue to keep the money rolling in. I say we, but there was no way I was going to take part in this challenge! Once again we’d like to thank the generous sponsorship of our partners, many of whom also took part, including MD Enertech, Risby Air Conditioning, Kentex Services, Premier Refurb, Claremont, D&P Electrical, Conditioned Environment, Current Affairs Electrical, Springteam, Austin Recruitment, Granite Search and Selection, HRL Air Conditioning, Carters Contract Flooring and Macair. They helped the team raise this phenomenal amount of money for Shooting Star CHASE and we are all extremely grateful once again for their support.
