Bill Roberts aiming to raise £25,000 in 10 days for charity.

Clogau Gold’s chairman and founder Bill Roberts is set to abseil down London’s soaring skyscraper The Shard – and needs to raise £25,000 for the event, which takes place in 10 days’ time.

Roberts is part of a select line-up of fundraisers taking part in The Descent of the Shard charity abseil. He has a target of £25,000 to raise for two charities, including The Outward Bound Trust.


He said: “I’m delighted to be involved in such an exhilarating and unique opportunity to raise funds for such a great cause.

“The Outward Bound Trust is committed to helping young people realise their potential through activities that simultaneously support their social and emotional well-being. Clogau is pro-active in the support of many local charitable organisations and this is one of the most deserving.”.

Roberts will be part of a select team to scale the 310m building. Roberts has so far raised almost £800. He has set up a fundraising page, here.
