A THRILLING 150ft abseil organised to launch the new phase of a city office building raised £4,750 for charity.

Adrenalin junkies with a head for heights took on the challenge at The Balance building off Trippet Lane and Townhead Street, donating £50 each to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The stunt was organised to mark the completed refurbishment of the 10-storey building, formerly City Plaza.

Tim Bottrill, from Knight Frank property developers, said: “The whole ethos of The Balance focuses on an innovative combination of work and play, so what better way to launch the rebranded building than with a fun charity challenge.

“It provided a great atmosphere and an opportunity for business community to see the new improved offices and break-out areas. The day was a great success and I’m delighted we raised so much money for Bluebell Wood.”
