Over £1,000 is set to be raised for a local charity after staff from our client, Nottingham City Homes, and Hucknall-based company Total Reclaims took part in a fantastic charity abseil event last Saturday (18th July)!
All proceeds from the sponsored charity abseil of Newgate Court in Lenton will go to the Nottingham City homes supported charity, Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team (DAST).
The event marked the approaching demolition of Newgate Court, the last of five tower blocks to be taken down in Lenton in order to make way for 142 brand new council homes. The abseil was one of the last opportunities to make the most of the dramatic view from the top of one of these towers before it’s scheduled demolition this Autumn.
In addition to the 43 participants from Nottingham City Homes and Total Reclaims (who all managed to raise at least £50 each in sponsorship money!), the event was also supported by Keepmoat and Kaefer C&D.
The activity was managed by qualified instructors from Rock and Ice who made sure every abseiler was safe & sound and able to enjoy their 16 storey descent!
