"The tallest and toughest tower-running event in the UK" was exactly what 235 Berkeley employees faced when they raced up 920 steps at Tower 42 in City of London, to raise money for Shelter. Vertical Rush is Shelter's largest annual fundraiser, and Berkeley staff raised a remarkable £37,000. Celebrity participants such as Duncan James and Lee Ryan from Blue made the event especially memorable. A special mention goes to John Langton, who completed the task in 6 minutes 25 seconds, making him the fastest Berkeley participant!
Shelter is the UK's largest housing and homelessness charity. We have invested nearly half a million pounds in a wide range of services which prevent people losing their home.
Shelter's Housing Advisors provide individual support for people desperately struggling with debt, disrepair or mortgage and rent arrears. Without them, thousands more children and their families would lose their homes. 25% of Shelter's helpline calls are referred to their Housing Advisers for urgent attention.
