About this event

Alabaré's Homes for Veterans Spinnaker Tower Challenge is a fantastic personal challenge and an amazing adrenalin rush. Take on a 100-metre abseil down the side of Portsmouth’s iconic landmark while taking in the incredible views.

We are running this event over a weekend so that you have a choice either a Saturday or Sunday to join us. Are you brave enough?

All participants will be raising vital funds for Alabaré's Homes for Veterans work with homeless and vulnerable people.

All those aged under 14 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Abseil Event:

Experience an amazing adrenaline rush and take on a 100-metre descent down the side of Portsmouth’s iconic landmark, Spinnaker Tower. With unmissable views across Portsmouth Harbour, the Solent and the Isle of Wight, there is no better way to experience life on the edge!

You can choose to abseil on Saturday 4th or Sunday 5th September 2021. The day will run from 8.30 am until 6 pm. Individuals will be given a time slot of 90 minutes which will start at 8.30 am and continue through to 4.30 pm.

Why Support Us? 

976 homeless people died across the four nations last year. By taking part in The Spinnaker Challenge and fundraising for Alabaré and Homes for Veterans (H4V) will be making a difference to the lives of others. Homes for Veterans is part of Alabaré specifically designed to support those leaving any of the services - military, airforce or navy, who then struggle to adapt back into civilian life.

Homes for Veterans provides homes in key areas such as Portsmouth and Gosport, Plymouth and North and South Wales. In a typical year, we provide homes and support to over 300 vulnerable Veterans across the service. H4V helps transform their lives, through the provision of accommodation and helps them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life. Veterans, in particular, can struggle due to depression, PTSD, ill health, unemployment or relationship breakdown which can lead to homeless issues where H4V can help especially post the pandemic.
