Andrew proved yet again that he is not deterred by heights, by adding the abseil to the sponsored parachute jump he did last year. He was the first to go over the top with Craig Errington, Chief Executive of Wesleyan and David Strudley, CBE Chief Executive of Acorns.

Andrew said: “I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who took part - abseilers, supporters and sponsors of the event. The atmosphere was electric for the entire day. This was a superb team effort and tremendous fun.”
