Gareth Batty's Terrifying Abseil Challenge

Gareth Batty

My page:


As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am TERRIFIED of heights... but I am also very grateful to Evelina London Children's Hospital for caring so well for our baby in 2016. 

To say thank you, I have promised that I will abseil down St Thomas' Hospital at 8pm on 12th May with the aim of raising £10,000 over the season.

Please dig deep and help me raise this sum for the amazing hospital that gave such brilliant care to baby Isabella in 2016.

Thank you!
