The event for Oxford Hospitals Charity will take place on Sunday 23rd September at 10am, with participants taking part in a 100ft abseil down the side of Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital. All money raised will go towards the needs of the Children’s Hospital.
This fun activity may sound a bit extreme but is in fact very safe when professionals are involved (and of course, Oxford Hospitals Charity wouldn’t have it any other way!). Abseiling is also very far from an uncontrolled slide down, as the speed of descent is regulated by a friction device that the participant can safely operate any time, as it’s a part of the harness.
It’s all fun and games, but at Oxford Hospitals Charity, staff members prefer to practice what they preach. For the staff and customers of Oxfordshire Personal Training, there is nothing more exciting than promoting healthy, active living whilst raising funds for those in need.
Fifteen customers and staff members from Oxfordshire Personal Training have volunteered to participate in the Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital abseil, getting their ropes ready for Sunday 23rd September. And the best part is, everyone is welcome to join them, and they are hoping to share the wall with as many people as possible at 10 am sharp!
If you can’t make it, please consider contributing to the work of Oxford Hospitals Charity by donating (details are available on the official website – and you can even pick a cause to support), setting up a different fundraiser, following the social media channels, sharing the posts and raising awareness of the issues British hospitals encounter.
