Friday 9th August saw the Pink Hygiene team reached their summit and take on the challenge of climbing one of London’s most iconic landmarks.
11 of the team braved the windy conditions to embark on the challenge of climbing the O2 to raise money for our chosen charity, Breast Cancer Now.
Suspended 2 metres above the surface of the O2 roof, the walkway is 52 metres above ground level and 380 metres long. At its steepest point, the walkway has an incline of 28 degrees on the way up and 30 degrees on the way back down. No mean feat for some of the team who chose this event to overcome their fear of heights.
Adam Speck, Director, was proud of the team “It was a great day out and a great bonding experience for the team. Starting the day on the cable cars to get to the O2 was a big achievement for some of the team who have a fear of heights and even more so for the climb itself. They can all be proud of themselves”. He continued “From day one of forming the company, Pink has always donated to Breast Cancer Now and are committed to do this with each and every new contract we secure. Days like today are another great way to enhance this total, which is fast surpassing £12,000. Final figures are to be confirmed, but we anticipate a total donation figure of around £800-£1,000 from today. A fantastic effort from Team Pink”.
The need for Breast Cancer Now’s work has never been greater. Breast cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, affecting 50,000 women every year and killing 1,000 every month. One in eight women in the UK will face breast cancer in their lifetime.
