As part of a community festival to celebrate Watford Community Housing Trust’s 10th anniversary on Saturday 9th September, LIFE Build’s Mike Wilde, Dean Shipp and Tim Sharp successfully completed abseiling 170ft down the side of the tallest building in Watford. 

This event raised over £10,000 for the Peace Hospice Care which is amazing! These funds go towards helping the Hospice raise the £5.3 million needed each year to provide their services for local people with a life limiting illness and their loved ones.

Finishing with a time of 1 hour, 56 minutes and 35 seconds.   This was Ric’s best time in 8 years and has spurred him on to enter more half marathons. Ric raised money for The Hospice of St Francis.
