We successfully tackled the challenge of climbing the 842 steps of London’s iconic BT Tower to raise valuable funds to support the charity Action on Hearing Loss with its pioneering projects that transform the lives of deaf and hard of hearing people.
Becky Watret, Bryonie Davies, Eden Smith & Jessica Emmerson completed the challenge, headed up by team leader and salon owner Nick Tedd. Nick has hereditary, severe binaural hearing loss so had a personal motivation for taking on the challenge and supporting Action on Hearing Loss. Eden Smith reached the top in an amazing 10 minutes 15 seconds, closely followed by the others.
“The team did a great job on the day and with over £2000 raised and counting it was a tiring but successful day,” explained Nick. “I would also like to thank everyone who supported us & East Midlands Trains, who very kindly donated first class return tickets for all the team to get to London on the day, which made all the difference with tired bodies on the journey home.”
“Nick proves that hearing loss is no bar to being a successful businessman and his enthusiasm to raise funds climbing the BT Tower with his colleagues is a real inspiration,” said Rachel Anderson, Events Fundraising Executive at Action on Hearing Loss. “The BT Tower climb has become an iconic event and while this year’s event is over, now is the time to sign up for next year’s event and get in training early!”
