Heathrow colleagues have been abseiling down Terminal 5 today as part of the Heathrow Duke of Edinburgh Fitbit Challenge launch!

Over 100 Heathrow colleagues, including CEO John Holland-Kaye, have today abseiled from the Terminal 5 departures level balcony to the ground as part of Duke of Edinburgh Award Diamond Anniversary celebrations!

The abseiling was part of a launch event of the airport’s campaign to support the DofE Diamond Challenge, with HRH The Earl of Wessex on hand to help launch the FITBIT Challenge!

As part of the challenge, over 150 Heathrow colleagues will walk, run, cycle and/or row the equivalent distance of individual destinations from the 180 worldwide destinations available from Heathrow by the end of June.

As a headline Diamond Partner, Heathrow is joining Amey, British Gas and RSM in supporting the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for the next two years.
