Jonathan Thornton Completes 2.6 Challenge for HRCST

As a Trustee of the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust, Jonathan Thornton has spent the last four years leading the development of a multi-million pound facility to enable children of all abilities, including those with severe disabilities, to benefit from all activities on and in the water. In order to raise funds during the 2.6 National Challenge, Jonathan decided to climb the height of the world’s tallest building – the 2600 feet Burj Dubai – in his own garden, which has a 100 foot descent to the River Helford. Jonathan’s wife Rose supported his endeavours by matching every pound raised to a total of £2600 and promising him a glass of bubbly on completion.
