What’s it like?

This promises to be an adrenaline filled experience, rest assured that no previous experience is required as our fully trained instructors will take you through everything you need to know to abseil outdoors. Friends and family are very welcome to come along on the day and watch you from the ground, and you will have the chance to purchase an official photograph after your descent.

If abseiling isn't for you, don't worry, there are other ways that you can get involved and support your hospital such as taking part in our Bake Off or Jam Jar Tombola. 

Bake off hero

Grab your rolling pins, and show off your baking skills for a good cause. You can bake anything sweet such as a full cake, cupcakes, biscuits or brownies.
Categories include;

  • Childhood memories including superheroes
  • Biscuits & Cookies
  • Chocolate - the more chocolate the better!
  • Traditional/Classic bake off - think victoria sponge, lemon drizzle, cupcakes

Points will be allocated based on your interpretation of the theme, taste and aesthetics! Entry is free but all bakes will go on sale after judging to raise money for our charities. There are some rules so please download this pack for more information if you'd like to enter - there are also some great prizes up for grabs!


Jam Jar Tombola 

This is a great variation on a classic fundraising idea and the whole family can get involved. All you need to do is fill an empty jam jar with sweets, coins, biscuits, small toys - anything you have! On the day people will buy a ticket and win the jar that matches with their ticket. If you would like to donate a jam jar please you can find all the details here.
