Bill Roberts Challenge

BILL ROBERTS – NOT YOUR AVERAGE CHAIRMAN!

We are very proud of the achievements of William Roberts, Founder and Chairman of Safety Media and Jewellery Brand of the Year Clogau gold of Wales.

This week we are especially proud as Bill has recently achieved a World first by abseiling down three iconic London buildings one after the other! The buildings were:

  • The Gherkin (180m tall)
  • The Cheesegrater (224m tall)
  • The Walkie Talkie (160m tall)

In total the abseil was 1,916 feet which is the equivalent of 142 double decker buses and the longest abseil ever attempted by civilians. The aim of the event is to raise over £4million for the Outward Bound Trust and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.

At the age of 71 most people look forward to the quiet life, this is not the case for our intrepid leader who took on this challenge and has so far raised over £69,000 which is creeping towards his £100,000 target.
