25 brave climbers tackled the iconic O2 (millennium dome) on Sunday 13th September to raise funds for our refuge services. The adventurous participants, the youngest being 11 years old, took the challenge in their stride and were rewarded with the magnificent views the O2 has to offer. We had a variety of groups, from families to work colleagues. We even had our very own board member Allison!
The exciting event, which was the first of its kind for us, raised a phenomenal £5,000 and donations are still coming in. Every penny raised will go towards our refuge services, ensuring clients and their children receive the best support possible at the most challenging time for them.
“I‘m so glad I pushed myself to do it. Everything about the event was very well run and organised, from being greeted when we arrived at the O2 to being greeted at the end of the climb! I am so glad I took part in this event to raise much needed funds for such a worthwhile cause, and would like to say thank you so much to everyone who supported and encouraged me, and to Katie and the DASH team for encouraging me to take on this challenge!” Eunice Cubbage
“It was a pleasure to help, thoroughly enjoyed the day and the challenge” Pamela Tarrant, Segro.
