Are you ready to be brave?

Take on this mind boggling 320ft abseil and challenge yourself to do the unexpected. Experience amazing views and make memories that will last you a lifetime.

There is an enormous sense of pride when you reach the bottom and think “I just did that!”.

Open to anyone aged 14 or over; no previous experience is needed, just a sense of adventure and a head for heights.

Your hospice needs you!

Your £25 registration fee covers the cost of putting on the event only. To help reach everyone who needs hospice care we ask all those taking part to raise £285, which could provide a day of fun, laughter, care and support at Chestnut Tree House for a child with a life-limiting condition.

It was great to support a local hospice - we had a great day at the abseil and I had a lot of fun with everyone there.
