Adventure in W8: Abseiling from the Roof Gardens

Today eight intrepid folk from Kensington’s networking group, BNI Kensington, abseiled from the Roof Gardens in a bid to raise money for Elizabeth Finn, a charity devoted to helping to alleviate poverty. Sam Branson (son of) led the way, looking very confident. He is however, apparently, used to rock climbing. Some of the others though clearly were not. Emotions ranged from very confident – ‘I’m just going for a quick sail down to M&S’, to others who were truly terrified. Legs shaking. My legs were also shaking, being a further one storey up from the abseilers and let me tell you, this is a tall building – amazing views over Kensington, but the expressions on their faces were equally amazing……

Raising money from BNI Kensington were Jo Eccles (legs really were shaking), Tom Simnet and Jason Cobine (joking with SB), Mike Kammerling, Matthew Woodthorpe (just checking to see how far down it was), Bernd Radashitzk, Andrew Lamont (interviewed by the press as he landed) and Karen Haller (interviewed/photographed by other local press).
