A teacher from Charlton Park Academy has abseiled down a building to raise money for a children's hospital.

Kirsty Aziz is an English teacher at the Charlton SEN school and on Friday (May 10) she abseiled down St Thomas' Hospital, which is around 160ft tall.

She was raising money for the children in the Evelina Hospital, which is connected to St Thomas'.

Kirsty said: "The Evelina care for poorly children with complex medical conditions and my brother Georgie was looked after there when he was younger."

"I also work in a special needs school in London and many of our students are cared for and looked after by this outstanding hospital. If you can donate I would be grateful.

"It is an amazing hospital that treats many children and young people. The teams working here are modern day superheroes and deliver such a high level of care and support."

Kirsty raised a whopping £671.50 and says she is so grateful for the amount of support she was given.
