Strawberrysoup scales a skycraper!

We did it! On Tuesday, five of us tackled the tough challenge that is Vertical Rush!

42 flights of stairs – that’s 932 steps – as quickly as you can. It’s definitely not as easy as it sounds (and we know it doesn’t sound easy!!) but it was worth it for the fantastic views from the top of Tower 42 and, most importantly, the money we helped to raise for Shelter.

The atmosphere on the day was great, with coffee from Percol giving us the energy we needed and music from a fab brass band to spur us on as we warmed up!

A huge thank you to everyone who sponsored us via JustGiving. Your donations will help Shelter continue to support families suffering from bad housing and homelessness. If you want to congratulate us with a donation, you still can at: justgiving.com/strawberrysoup-verticalrush 

We’ll be back next year to beat our times and to raise more money for such a great cause!
