We're throwing the editor off the roof

Come and watch as Schofield and other Manchester faces get flung off the roof of the Mal

We're throwing the editor off the roof

How much would you pay to see your boss go over the edge of very high building? £10,000? £20,000? We'd pay about £150 – but only if it was for charity, and only if he was wearing a safety harness. There's a recession on, and we're not psychopaths.

If you pledge £100 or more – which goes to children's charity The Variety Club – you could watch your boss abseil off the top of the Malmaison roof. We've got places for three bosses and the companies that pledge the most money will get one.

If you're like us, and you'd like to see your boss mildly alarmed but not splattered to bits on a pavement, you might like to take part in this fundraising event at the Malmaison Hotel on Thursday 30 July. If your workplace pledges £100 or more – which goes to children's charity The Variety Club – you could watch your boss abseil off the top of the Malmaison roof. We've got places for three bosses and the companies that pledge the most money will get one. (If you have a nominated charity of your own we’re happy to split your donations 50/50.)

Big cheeses from loads of Manchester organisations and businesses will be doing the same thing, some of them in fancy dress. Meanwhile, gleeful onlookers from their workplace will enjoy a BBQ on the new terrace area outside the Mal with a champagne bar and complimentary cocktail tasters.

So if you want to go – and you want to see your boss being tossed off (fnar, fnar) the roof of the Malmaison, fill out the form below to tell us how much your company or organisation will donate. It's for a very worthy cause. The Variety Club has been helping sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and young people for 60 years. It's long prided itself on providing the small change which can make a real difference.

The Malmaison Hotel's general manager, Graham Bradford, is one of those doing the stunt. If the event raises £1,000 then he's promised to do it head first. We're not sure that it's possible to abseil head first but we'd like to see him try, so get pledging – the three companies that offer the most will get the three places and their office will be invited to the party on the Mal's new terrace. It all takes place on Thursday 30 July between 4.30pm and 6.30pm.

There's an online sponsorship form for people who want to sponsor Graham – click here. To see Schofield and your own boss go off the roof, and get your office invited to a summer champagne and BBQ soiree at the Mal, send us your pledge. We're looking for donations of £100 or over – think of the children (and the party invite, and your boss's face as they're about to step backwards into thin air). Click here
