Can you conquer The Gherkin?
Join #TeamNSPCC as they conquer The Gherkin Challenge on 27 October 2019. Every step you climb and every pound you raise will help protect more children.
There’ll be high-fives, #nofilter views and the clink of champagne glasses waiting for you when you've climbed 38 floors to the finish line. But the view’s just one of the reasons you’ll feel on top of the world.
Whether you've conquered The Gherkin in 7 or 40 minutes, with your colleagues, friends or on your own - you’ll know you’ve done something amazing for children.
By raising £250, you could help our Speak out Stay safe programme reach 83 primary school children, giving them the knowledge to protect themselves from abuse.
Did you know? In its 10th year, The Gherkin Challenge has seen over 6,000 people climb its stairs and has raised over £1m for NSPCC.
