When You Wish Upon a Star Charity Abseil

Saturday 11th September 2021

Event Details:

After the disappointment of postponing this event in 2020 we cannot wait to get this off the ground!

This is your chance to abseil 212 ft down the Derby Cathedral!  The challenge is terrifying, the cause rewarding. Are you up for it?

The abseil benefits both the When You Wish Upon a Star Uk charity and Derby Cathedral. Adventurous participants will climb the 189 steps of the tower before taking on the descent from the top of the Cathedral. 

Secure your place today: email or call us on 0115 979 1720.

We will support you with fundraising advice and ideas to help you achieve your fundraising target.
