The KWB abseil – at one of Birmingham’s tallest residential buildings – has raised £26,349 for local bereavement charity, Edward’s Trust.
Nearly 70 abseilers braved the 100-metre descent down the 33-storey Bank Tower 2.
Thanks to our thrillseekers
The abseilers included Martin Cook, Emma Bird, Jacob Davies and Paul Warder from KWB, plus individuals and thrillseekers from other local businesses. Participants included teams from Our Training Department, Harworth Group, JM Glendinning, The Binding Site, Nant Limited, Halesowen BID, Beam and WS Gardens.
Every penny raised from the KWB abseil has gone to Edward’s Trust. The organisation relies on donations to fund its work with children, young people and families facing loss and surviving bereavement.

Joanne Spencer, Office Manager at KWB, who organised the event said: “We’re just overwhelmed by the amount of money raised through sponsorship and donations.
“People and businesses have been so generous and there was an incredible atmosphere on the day. Edward’s Trust does vital work that helps so many people across Birmingham, including some of our own colleagues.”
Supporting Edward’s Trust
Helen Tomblin, Communications & Marketing Manager at Edward’s Trust, added: “As one of the abseilers, I can say it was a nerve-wracking but brilliant experience, with incredible views of the city!
“We’re so grateful to KWB for organising this event and we urge more companies to offer corporate support. We are a small team and need help to organise big fundraising events like this, which are fun and great for team building.”
