ABSEILING AND ZIPSLIDE FUNDRAISING
If you would like to do an abseil for charity you can get in touch and we can tell you what up and coming events we have and for what charities. You can choose one of them and we can put you in touch with the relevant charity. If there's enough space you can book through them and they will provide you with the appropriate fundraising pack.
If you are interested in having an abseil arranged especially then either pick a site from the list below or tell us about the site you would like and we can do a risk assessment. We can also help you with what sites are most suitable for certain numbers and abilities.

Just a short note to compliment the entire team for their kind, thoughtful, efficient and above all friendly handling of all the participants in last Sunday's abseil event. Both my wide and I were impressed at the way the arrangements went so smoothly and the fact that there were no undue delays or people hanging about. For my part I would like to thank, most sincerely, Andy, my 'mentor', up on the gantry who realised my absolute fear of heights and who gave me space, time and lots of calm encourangement before I finally 'let go'. No rush, no come on you're holding everyone up, but a 'when you're ready... take your time to get it together' kind of attitude. It was also kind of him to shout encourangement as I decended. I make no bones about it, I was terrified, but with Andy's encouragement I made it. Please pass my deap gratitude on to this kind man - I'm sure he will remember me for all the wrong reasons. Thank you to all your team for making it happen and for all the fabulous contributions you helped raise for all the good causes. My son in law had a stroke in January and is now making a recovery to near normality, the treatment he received is in part I'm sure due to your good works, thank you.
