Taking steps for a great cause
Walkie Talkie Tower Climb is open for sky-high thrills
Officially known as the Fenchurch Building, the Walkie Talkie is a 38-floor building by Rafael Viñoly, with a public Sky Garden and contemporary rooftop restaurant. There are actually 37 floors, plus three stories of glorious landscaped gardens designed by the acclaimed urban landscaper Gillespies, which serves as a restorative sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of London life on the busy streets below.
Walkie Talkie Tower Climb takes place from 8:00 am on Saturday 5 March 2022 and the entry fee is £25, plus a fundraising pledge of £250. That may sound a bit 'steep' but then this is a rather unique uphill challenge!
The fee does include chip timing for your personal assault on the 36-floor/896-step course; a technical T-shirt; bespoke finisher's medal, and a celebratory drink in the Sky Garden. You will also be rewarded with spectacular 360-degree views of London from the fabulous Sky Garden, which you may enjoy with a friend or family member.
Whoever dares to take the stairs for this sky-high challenge of a lifetime will be raising vital funds to help seriously ill children in GOSH. Donations also fund ground-breaking research, advanced equipment, children and family support services, and the building and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. The pandemic has only made the work of GOSH even harder and fundraising events less productive or cancelled.
Talking of cancelled events, should Walkie Talkie Tower Climb not go ahead you will be offered an alternative date; a full refund, or the opportunity to donate your registration fee to the GOSH charity.
