Abseiler Went To See, See, See

Drop In Any Time You Want

A 93-year-old Gloucestershire man has dropped into the record books as Britain's oldest - and best-dressed - abseiler. In a natty tweed jacket, shirt and tie, dapper daredevil Les Pugh, 93, descended 160ft from a Cheltenham office block roof to raise £15,000 for two charities.

FOOTNOTE: Roped in.

I would think at his age one charity would be enough:
"THE BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION"
with perhaps the second:
"MENTAL ABNORMALITIES"
