‘Up at The O2’ is a new challenge that charity event organisers can add to their roster of fundraising activities. 

‘Up at The O2’involves participants ascending to the very top of The O2 via a walkway suspended 52m above ground level. After climbing to the top of the iconic building participants reach the viewing platform, which affords 360 degree views across London, including landmarks such as the Olympic Park and Canary Wharf.

Charities can book an exclusive session meaning that the roof is completely theirs and can be tailored to include a dedicated climb guide, personalised video greeting and a team video package.

A number of extra options can be added to the experience such as food and drink, either on the roof itself or via one of The O2’s many restaurants and event spaces. Prices start from £500 for an exclusive group of 15 climbers experiencing the once in a lifetime activity. 

Jennie Double, event sales director at The O2, commented: “Charities are looking for different opportunities to raise funds and an ascent of The O2 has to be up there. The great thing about this challenge is the fact that it is less scary than some other activities and therefore will have the draw of a larger audience and abilities. ”
