A GROUP of friends donned fake moustaches and wigs as they braved new heights for charity.
John Hunter, Malcolm Green and Charlotte Henry from Bromley abseiled from the top of Riverwalk House in Millbank, London on June 29 dressed as the 118 118 characters to raise over £1,000 for The Sick Children's Trust.
Mr Hunter said: "I'll admit the abseil really did test our nerves, we were a little scared at the top waiting to go down. But families staying in The Sick Children's Trust houses have to conquer much more frightening situations than this - and knowing we would help more families stay together when they have a seriously ill child really helped to get us all over the edge."
Ms Henry added: "But we had nothing to fear, it was really great fun and was such an adrenaline rush when we reached the ground."
The Sick Children's Trust runs seven Homes from Home at major hospitals where families can stay for free for as long as they need while their child is undergoing treatment.
