Loadhog Employee Overcomes Her Fear of Heights in Aid of Charity

29th May 2019

An employee of Loadhog, Sheffield's reusable packaging innovator, overcame her extreme fear of heights to join four of her colleagues to abseil down a city centre building which raised over £700 RSPCA.

It was Karen Austin who needed some 'gentle encouragement' to 'take the plunge' down the side of the 160 ft Sheffield Hallam University Owen building in the city centre. She said -I found the experience truly exhilarating although I was pleased to meet my other intrepid colleagues Zara Lees, Arran Dixon, Darren Thomas and Shaun Caley at the bottom! It wasn't as bad as I had envisaged and as it was helpful that it was for such a great cause. The company also contributed to the fundraising total and shortly will be donating several of its reusable attached lid containers to RSPCA for its enduring use.
