Clogau founder and chairman Bill Roberts will scale London’s three most iconic buildings in the name of charity.

The ambitious charity fundraising event, City Three Peaks, will involve Roberts and 30 other participants abseiling down three of the City of London’s buildings to help support 9-19 year olds access challenging adventurous Outward Bound experiences.

City Three Peaks is run by The Outward Bound Trust in association with The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity. The three buildings Roberts will face are 30 St Mary Axe, The Leadenhall Building and 20 Frenchurch Street – otherwise known as The Gherkin, The Cheesegrater and The Walkie-Talkie. This will be the first time anyone has abseiled down these buildings.


Roberts previously took part in the Decent of The Shard abseil in 2012 and is looking forward to this next challenge.

Robert says: “As chairman of Safety Media and Clogau, I’m delighted to be involved in an exhilarating and unique opportunity to raise funds for a great cause, for a second time.

Some of the money raised will be used towards the Aberdovey centre here in North Wales, from which the very first Outward Bound course took place.”

This event is one of the first of its kind and as such the fundraising target Roberts has set is £100,000.

The event will take place on Monday 7 September 2015. If you want to support Roberts visit
