Raise money for the Stroke Association
Battersea Power Station in the Borough of Wandsworth is an iconic landmark and recognised across the world thanks to Pink Floyd's Animals album, the front cover of which featured an inflatable pink pig tied to one of the southern chimneys.

Now, in what is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity, you have the chance to abseil 100ft down this infamous London structure, thanks to the Battersea Power Station and the Stroke Association – all for a good cause.

On Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 November, hundreds of daredevils will embark on 'The Descent 100ft Abseil' to raise money for the Stroke Association, an organisation working to prevent strokes and provide essential care to those who's lives have already been affected by the UK's third biggest killer.

In order get involved, participants need to pay a £15 registration fee and then raise a minimum of £125. As well as an unforgettable memory, all fund raisers will be awarded with a gift and certificate as a memento of your achievement.

The association says it raised £200,000 last year as 800 people took part in the event over two days.
