Event description

Description

This is Abseil like no other.

We are raising money for 'We are Beams' a local charity in Kent that supports disabled children and their families.

This is a real challenge as the ArcelorMittal Orbit abseil is the UK's highest free-fall abseil. You will not come into contact with anything during the abseil until you reach the ground.

It is the UK's tallest sculpture, and the abseil is 80 metres high (262 feet)

Breathtaking views extend as far as 20 miles around and include The Gherkin, St Pauls, Canary Wharf, Wembley Stadium and the O2 Arena.

You will receive a safety brief and training however this abseil requires physical exertion and strength.

The activity is not recommended for sufferers of vertigo.

Minimum age 14 years (under 18s require parental consent), minimum height 1.2 metres, maximum weight 19 stone.

Be advised that the abseil is psychologically challenging and participants may feel a level of fear.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in a fit state of health to complete the abseil, If in doubt, you must consult your medical practitioner before embarking on the abseil.

All you have to do now is to raise at least £200 in sponsorship for the charity to support our work with disabled children and families.
