An 86-year-old grandmother abseiled down Guy’s Cancer Centre on June 4 to raise more than £1,000 for state-of-the-art patient facilities.
Pam Miller trained as a nurse at Guy’s Hospital from 1948 to 1952, where her grandson was born, and was one of 95 daredevils to descended 150 feet.
A total of £35,000 in sponsorship was raised and will be spent on providing Guy’s and St Thomas’ cancer patients with the best support possible.
Pam, who lives in Walsingham, Norfolk, said: “I was determined to do my bit to support the new Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital. I’ve always loved Guy’s and it sounds like a brilliant project, putting cancer services under one roof with state-of-the-art facilities.
“The abseil was good fun and I really enjoyed it. I was never scared at all. My family were there to support me and as I abseiled down the building I could hear them all shouting ‘Go Grandma go!’”
