Chelmer Wanderers player signs up to ‘Vertical Rush’

On Thursday 12th March over 1,000 runners will scale London’s iconic Tower 42 to raise money for homeless charity Shelter. Lewis King of Chelmer Wanderers will be amongst those fundraising as he joins the team from James Hay Partnership, the retirement wealth planning platform.

“As a team we are aiming to raise £1,700 for this great cause” Lewis explains, “Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing and homelessness and the idea behind the challenge is that a family in Britain is made homeless every 10 minutes, in the time it takes to reach the top of Tower 42″.

Tower 42, in the heart of the city, is one of London’s tallest buildings and the challenge of running up the stairwell of all 42 floors (932 steps) is Shelters flagship fundraising event.

Chelmer Wanderers >> Despite the recent weather playing havoc with many football fixtures Chelmer Wanderers have managed to fulfil many of their league games – currently sitting at third place in the Pope and Smith Chelmsford Sunday League. Weather permitting the team will take on 6th placed Ongar United at the Love Lane ground this coming Sunday, 1st March.
