Abseiling in a Tux - just for charity!

The President and Chief Executive Officer of HCA International, Mr Michael Neeb donned his tuxedo to abseil 12 floors down the Danubius Hotel in St John’s Wood to raise money for the Wellington Hospital £1 million appeal.

Mr Neeb, together with Wellington Chief Executive Officer Mr Keith Hague and a team of 30 volunteers from the hospital, raised almost £5,000 towards the appeal which supports the Junior Diabetes Research Fund and the Red Cross appeal for HIV orphans in sub-Saharan Africa.

The two day 120 foot charity abseil was started by the Chairman of Danubius Hotels, Sir Bernard Schreier.

So far the Wellington Appeal has raised almost £700,000.
