The London City Selection ‘Gherkineers’ attended a cheque presentation on Tuesday evening to formally donate their raised funds from The NSPCC Gherkin Challenge which six members of the London City Selection team took part in in June. The cheque for £885.00 was presented to Ros Bird, Corporate Manager from the NSPCC South East where the team of Gherkineers celebrated with views of the London Skyline. A generous donation was given by The London Stock Exchange who matched the raised amount to reach a total donation of £1770.00
The Gherkin Challenge, completed by the team on the 23 June earlier this year, involved climbing the 38 floors of the iconic London landmark, also one of the selection’s member venues, in a race against the clock.
Ed Bolling, fellow Gherkineer and former Chair of London City Selection said: “We were so pleased to have achieved such a great accomplishment and to have raised so much for such a worthy cause. We are all so grateful to those who supported us and donated and especially to London Stock Exchange for such a generous contribution.”
