Plucky property team ropes in £2,500
A team of property experts raised £2,500 for a national charity – just by hanging out together and admiring the views at a prestigious Birmingham office building.
It wasn’t quite as simple as it sounds – the plucky colleagues abseiled down the side of their office block supported by just a rope some 200ft in the air.
Twenty-eight brave volunteers went over the edge of the 16-storey 54 Hagley Road office block.
The event, in aid of national disability charity Sense, was organised by Birmingham-based chartered surveyors Pennycuick Collins. Opus Land, which owns 54 Hagley Road, also staged its own charity abseil on the same day, raising funds for property industry charity Landaid.
Morrison Edwards Insurance Solutions covered the cost of the abseil equipment, with a donation of £750, meaning that all the £2,500 raised will go to the charity.
Charles Gillett, commercial property partner at Pennycuick Collins, said: “It was an amazing event and an exhilarating experience. We had tremendous support from friends, clients and colleagues for those that plucked up the courage to take part.
“I’m delighted that we were able to raise a significant sum for our chosen charity, Sense.”
Richard Smith, Chairman of Opus Land, said “I was in awe of the courage of the people taking part and it certainly gives you a different perspective of the building from the roof. Well done to all that raised funds for the charities.”
