Abseiling for Veterans
Updated: Feb 16
At rradar, we know that the passions of our colleagues extend outside the office walls and into the wider community.
That’s why we’re sending our congratulations to Trevor Richards, one of our HR advisors at rradarstation, who served 22 years in the British Army before joining us and is a regular volunteer collector for Help for Heroes.
However, he wanted to do more – in particular, something for his former Armed Forces colleagues who have had to cope with the life-changing trauma of losing a limb. He set his sights on raising £500 for BLESMA, the only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives.
Trevor openly admits he can’t run marathons or climb mountains, but abseiling? That he could do. So, on 22nd July, Trevor climbed the 262 feet to the top of the London Orbit (the iconic helter-skelter sculpture and observation tower at the 2012 Olympic Park, London) and then successfully abseiled down in typical British summer weather (i.e torrential rain) and raised £750 to date, of which £190 was contributed by his rradar colleagues.
Didn’t donate? It’s not too late!
