Our first ever hospice abseil takes place this year at the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower… It’s the UK’s highest free-fall abseil! Will you take on the rope to give compassion and hope to hospice patients and their families?

Taking place on Friday 11th May, you will have the opportunity to take on a HUGE challenge for St Peter & St James Hospice! The ArcelorMittal Orbit is an iconic sculpture in the Olympic Park, and at 262ft, the views will be astounding. Over the last year we have had many supporters asking for a new challenge, something to really test them and we have found it!

Registration = £50

Minimum sponsorship = £300

We shall meet at the Olympic park in the morning, and have a maximum of 20 places for our supporters over a 2 hour slot. You will be in the safe hands of trained professionals who will guide you through the abseil. We hope you will join us for this exciting adventure!
