With charity being at the heart of our company, Group Managing Director, David Lewis is delighted to be a trustee of such an amazing charity, helping them to raise money in fighting cancer. Teens Unite Fighting Cancerbrings young people diagnosed with cancer together through workshops and activities to help them rebuild their confidence and self-esteem, by learning new and life affirming skills.
In bids to raise money, Teens Unite decided to take on the Tower Abseil event, held at Broadgate Tower in London. With over 110 participants spread over the two days, the team traipsed up over 33 stories high to then abseil down the 540ft tower. Alongside a number of participants is Rita Pezzani a 92 year old lady, battling out the challenge with her son and two granddaughters to raise money for what is such an important charity, founded by daughter-in-law Debbie Pezzani.
Rita Pezzani commented “You have to make the most of life you have been given. At 92, I’m still fit and healthy and after watching Teens Unite‘s abseil challenge previously, it was something I wanted to be a part of. The young people supported by Teens Unite have to overcome so many challenges during their fight against cancer. Now it’s my turn to take on the challenge to help them“. If you wish to help raise money for such an incredible charity, you can donate to Rita’s abseil atwww.justgiving.com/ritapezzaniabseil.
The first on abseil Sunday 11th June 2017 which we had to cancel the afternoon session due to high winds, so therefore put on a second abseil on Friday 15th September we are proud to have raised an incredible £28,150 profit, this amount is still raising.
Group Managing Director, David Lewis comments ‘It’s heartwarming to be part of Teens Unite. With many people fighting the vicious disease every day, we want to do our bit to raise money and help those affected to regain the skills they once had.’
