LSU London completes first ever Rag event!
On Saturday 3rd October, a team of students, LSU London staff and University staff completed the 114 metre abseil down the Acelormittal Orbit

It was a fairly cold and VERY misty morning on Saturday 3rd October, but this did not stop the team of Loughborough University London students completing the first LSU London Rag event - EVER!
After arriving somewhat bleary eyed for a 9am start, the team made their way to the equipment room to be harnessed up. The harnesses had to be on very tight to ensure that we were completely safe and secure - so tight infact that once you were harnessed in, it was very difficult to stand up straight!
Once kitted up, the team headed up in the lift to face the challenge ahead.
Mimi and Amine showed off their bravery by offering to be the first to go down. Mimi didn't look fazed at all! Next saw LSU London Co-ordinator Ellie Read and Senior Student Support officer Amy Ward take on the challenge. It's safe to say Amy was very nervous and couldn't stop her legs from wobbling!
Next down was Jas and Mia both of whom were very nervous about what was ahead. Jas has a fear of heights and was very quiet in the lead up to his turn!
The penultimate pair was Dan and Nate with Allen following closely behind. Despite the nerves, all three emerged with beaming smiles having collected their official photographs and landing safely on two feet on the ground!
Overall the team were very aprehensive and some terrified of heights, but together, every single person abseiled the 114 metre height of the AcelorMittal Orbit on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The students have been working hard to raise money for St Mungo's Broadway, a fantastic charity that aims to make a difference for homeless people. They are still fundraising and have a way to go before they reach their target. Please support them by donating here www.justgiving.co.uk/LSU-London
