On 28th April 2013, 50 supporters of the ABC Trust climbed the O2 in Greenwich, London as a sponsored event. Some traveled to London together from Wellingborough by coach, leaving at 8am on Sunday morning, whilst others traveled independently, preferring to make the event part of an exciting weekend. Everyone achieved their objective and had a fantastic experience at the same time. Well done to all who took part, and thanks to those who traveled down with us for support. The final total amounts to a phenomenal £6,142.63!!!

We would like to say a big thank you to two local supporters: RB Travel, Pytchley, who subsidised a coach to get many of our supporters to the O2 and Worksafe Direct (UK) Ltd, Corby who provided t-shirts for the climbers to wear for the day, publicising the trust around the O2 complex.

Karl made the ABC Trust his favoured charity during December 2012, raising money for the trust with contributions collected during his amazing Christmas Lights display. He raised a grand total of £1740. Because of the high profile of the lights in the local area (and beyond), we reached many people who previously were not aware of the trust, and really appreciate the exposure and promotion that the lights gave us. Thanks Karl and all your family for all your hard work.
