On Sunday 16 June, 25 wonderful supporters took on the challenge of abseiling for Spread a Smile. Our first ever abseil was held at the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London.

Amongst those taking part was a team abseiling in memory of Nikhita Char, who sadly passed away last year. Her father, Prav, as well as family friends, made up the team. A team from our wonderful Corporate Supporter, Engage FS, also took part in memory of Luke Sawkins, who sadly passed away earlier this year. We’re so thankful to both teams for undertaking this challenge for us.

Our brave co-founder, Josephine Segal, also took part in the abseil. She said, “I was delighted to be able to join the abseil with Prav, honouring the memory of Nikhita. It was wonderful to see people honouring Luke’s memory as well. The abseil itself certainly was a challenge!”
