Over £91,000 was raised for Guy’s Hospital’s new cancer centre last weekend when hundreds of people took part in a gruelling ‘urban challenge.’

Fundraisers took part in a 2.4km run through the streets of Southwark, cycled 15km on exercise bikes and then climbed to the 29th floor of the tower at Guy’s – the tallest hospital in the world.

After completing the 648-step climb, Bermondsey resident and cancer survivor Terry Weston said: “It was quite difficult, but I was very pleased I got to the top without stopping.

“I feel really passionate about Guy’s Cancer Centre and am thrilled I was able to show my support by fundraising like this. It was really worth doing.”

The new centre will provide support for 2m people in the south-east of England, bringing research and treatment under one roof. The appeal to help fund the centre has already raised £5m of a £15m goal.
