Abseil for Spread a Smile

600 333 mattd

On Sunday 16 June, over 20 Spread a Smile supporters will be abseiling the ArcelorMittal Orbit for us. The Orbit is the tallest sculpture in the UK and is located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. The Spread a Smile abseil team will be descending 262 feet whilst taking in breathtaking views across London.

Amongst those taking part is a team honouring the memory of Nikhita Char. Nikhita sadly passed away last year and her father, Prav, as well as close family friends, will be taking part to fundraise for us. There will also be a team from our wonderful Corporate Supporter, Engage FS, who will be abseiling in memory of Luke Sawkins, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Josephine Segal, Spread a Smile’s co founder, will be joining the abseilers. “This felt like such a lovely opportunity to support Spread a Smile.” she said. “I’m always in awe of our supporters who undertake challenges and fundraise for Spread a Smile and so now it’s my turn to give it a try! I want to join everyone who is abseiling in memory of those that they’ve lost. Although I’m facing my fear of heights head on, I know that this will be a fabulous thing to do, and a great achievement once my feet are back on the ground!”

We still have a limited number of places available for the abseil on 16 June. If you’d like to take part sign up here or contact us on info@spreadasmile.org or call 020 7482 5191
