Daredevil Charlie, 73, takes on ‘triple whammy’ challenge to raise money for our hospitals

Charlie Richardson

Charlie Richardson Grandfather-of-eight Charlie Richardson, a volunteer at our Trust, is back to his daredevil ways after being held back during the pandemic. This October he’ll be walking across the roof of the O2 Arena, then the roof of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before abseiling down from the stadium’s roof – all in one day!

All money raised will support our Trust’s charity, specifically our Volunteer team.

Charlie started fundraising for our hospitals to give back after his wife Marion was treated for breast cancer several years ago. His first challenge saw him complete a skydive, then he went on to abseil down Broadgate Tower, one of London’s tallest buildings.

The pandemic meant he had to pause his fundraising for the last two years, so now he’s keen to raise as much money as he can for a cause close to his heart.

Charlie, of Romford, said: “I’m really looking forward to getting back to it, I enjoy doing these crazy challenges, even though my family think I’m mad! They always come along to support me though.”
