King’s School - Scaling the Heights for Sight Concern!
On Sunday 22 March, students from King’s School will attempt to climb a series of London landmarks, starting with Big Ben, moving to The Shard and then to the London Eye – and they’ll be doing it without leaving Worcester. The “Climb-A-Thon” takes place at Vertical Limit Indoor Climbing Wall at Shrub Hill, Worcester, from 10am until 5pm.
It only costs £5 to climb and a minimum of £20 in sponsorship. No experience is needed, it's a fun family event. To take part email email@example.com or to sponsor visit mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/eyeprentice2015
