Local recruiters abseil down fountain house for charity

This weekend, local professionals from Hays Construction, the leading recruiting expert, abseiled 161 feet down the outside of Fountain House. The abseil down Reading's second tallest building raised money for The Reading Single Homeless Project (RSHP). The challenge took place on Saturday 27th February 2010.

The daring Hays consultants were Harpreet Sandhu, Tony Virgo-Harris and Claire McEnaney and they raised over £400 for the charity. RSHP wants every person in Reading to have their own home and the opportunity for a positive future. Their mission is to house, support and empower vulnerable people to transform their lives and fulfil their potential.

Tony Virgo-Harris, Business Manager at Hays Construction, says: "We are all proud to have completed this challenge. The RSHP is an incredibly worthwhile charity and we all worked hard to make sure that we were ready and able to raise as much money as possible."
