The Mayor of Brent, Ernest Ezeajughi, is hosting Love is in the Air, a charity abseiling event held
on Valentine’s Day 2020 in March as it has been postponed due to adverse weather.
The block being abseiled is a Tipi building (Landsby) on Weaver Walk, opposite the Civic Centre where Chop Chop Barbers are located. It is approximately 55m high and incorporates 17 floors.
If you would like to take part & tick abseiling off your bucket list as well as raising sponsorship to support our work, then please contact Kim.Gordon@brent.gov.uk
The event is open to all and you do not need to be working for Brent, so get your friends & family involved! All health & safety precautions have been taken and insurance is in place.
This event is limited to 50 people so get in touch soon so you don’t miss out!
All monies raised will go to the Mayor’s chosen charities:
The Sickle Cell Society is the only national charity in the UK that supports and represents people affected by a sickle cell disorder to improve their overall quality of life. First set up as a registered charity in Brent in 1979, the Sickle Cell Society is celebrating 40 years of working alongside health care professionals, parents, and people living with sickle cell to raise awareness of the disorder. The Society’s aim is to support those living with sickle cell, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
The Jason Roberts Foundation –The Anti-knife and gun crime charity, which will be represented by Jason Roberts Foundation. This foundation was established in 2007 by the former professional footballer Jason Roberts in order to put something back into the community he came from.
The work of the foundation has broadened to provide a support programme including mentoring, life skills, education and training projects within its wider sports activities and has worked with young people at risk of offending, those excluded from school or struggling in the school curriculum as well as young people with physical and learning difficulties. The organisation aims to create a safe haven to engage with children at an early stage to prevent them pursuing crime.
