City Trust CEO Danny Cox, decided to take a break from the old routine in the firm’s Dublin hq by travelling to London and abseiling down the city’s famed BT Tower for charity, along with celebrities and former Royal Marines.
Completed in 1964, the tower is an entirely self supporting structure, and stands over the skyline of West London at 188 meters tall. The abseil, from the 29th floor of the tower was over 138 meters. However, this height did not bother Cox; “I don’t get nervous about heights and things of that nature, though for a moment there it was a little windy. But it was all for a good cause”.
The purpose of the event was to raise funds for the charitable causes of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund and for the charity Sports Relief. Taking part in the event was a team of 30, including senior city managers, adventurer Bear Grylls, TV presenter Helen Skelton, former British and Irish Lion Ben Kay, and a number of other sports personalities.
