90-year old Brian Norrey becomes oldest person to abseil

On Saturday 17th July these two gentlemen showed that age does not stand in the way of achieving your ambitions!

Brian Norrey (90 years) and Ken Warren (86 years) both took on the challenge of the World’s Highest Abseil to raise money for the chosen charities.

Brian raised money for Children with Cancer UK and Ken for the NSPCC.

Both gentlemen have links with the Tower, Ken is a retired firefighter and Brian was a structural engineer who was involved in the building of the Tower.

Brian now holds the record as the oldest person to undertake the challenge to date.

Are you brave enough to try?
