Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 21:30

Dennis Woods, Chairman of Fisher Productions has been asked to join forces with The Lord Major of London  to raise money for the Lord Mayors Appeal.

 

On September 19th they will abseil 289 feet down the Lloyds of London building; charities supported by the appeal are

·         Beating Bowel Cancer

·         Princess Alice Hospice

·         Raleigh International

·         Working Chance

 

Fiona Woolf CBE is the current Lord Mayor of London and the 686th Lord Mayor, the second woman to hold the role since 1189.

Woods said “ I am looking to forward to the abseil and honoured to be teaming up with Fiona to take on this challenge, we hope to raise a significant amount  for the charity as a result.”

Woods is an avid skydiver  and no stranger to adventurous endeavours for charity; in March 2008 he trekked to the North Pole  spending 17 days covering over 150 miles in artic conditions.  In November 2011 he joined a team sledging to the South Pole and raised over £5,000 for charity.

Woods became non-executive Chairman at Fisher Productions in October 2013 and has previously held Chief Executive roles in the energy and fuel sector.  Woods is also an after dinner speaker and motivation coach and is the Master of the Worshipful Company of Fuellers.

Chief Executive of Fisher Productions Graham Beswick said; “The team at Fisher are an adventurous bunch and enjoy pushing boundaries so we are delighted that Dennis is leading the way with this thrilling  adventure. We are proud to support the Lord Majors Appeal and wish him every success in raising money for such a fantastic cause.”
