Team goes down as service is on the up

22 September 2011

To mark the launch of its new sustainable workplace solutions, Premier Sustain took part in a 500ft abseil down Guys Hospital tower to raise money for St Mungo’s which works to prevent homelessness and support homeless people in London and the South.

“Premier was absolutely fantastic at our Guy’s Hospital Abseil, bringing bags of enthusiasm and plenty of cheering supporters, and they’ve raised so much money! We would like to say thank you to the whole team for their dedicated support, helping St Mungo’s to continue to house, support and care for vulnerable and excluded people who are at risk of homelessness or are currently sleeping rough,” said Lisa Long, St Mungo’s Corporate team.

Premier Sustain supports St Mungo’s through its Giving Back Project, the reuse element of the service that gives clients the opportunity to donate unwanted furniture and equipment. Four members of the Sustain team (Amanda Russinger, Phil Oram, Carl Robson [pictured] and Ann Beavis) were inspired to take part in the challenge by the passion and commitment of the St Mungo’s team. The four didn’t let their nerves get the better of them and completed the abseil down Guy’s Hospital Tower at London Bridge on Sunday 18th September.

Phil Oram, Operations Director, Premier Sustain says: “Raising money for one of our selected charities seemed the best way to launch Premier Sustain’s new service. I think we would all agree that this abseil has been an amazing, once in a lifetime experience and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to take part and further support the excellent work of the St Mungo’s team.”

The team has so far raised over £1400 with more sponsorship still coming in. If you wish to support them further please visit
