The Big PASIC Abseil

16 July @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


Charity abseil for local children with cancer. Come and join us in the beautiful Peak District for an exhilarating 80ft free-hanging abseiling adventure.

Local children’s cancer charity PASIC is there for families across the East Midlands when they get the news no parent ever wants to hear. We’re calling on brave daredevils and thrill-seekers to help raise vital funds, and have some fun at the same time!

Imagine an old railway bridge with pillars and arches, spanning a narrow gorge, and one of the arches is over a swift-moving river. Welcome to Millers Dale Bridge. Your challenge is to abseil over the arch, which is above the River Wye in an absolutely stunning setting. This gives you an 80 foot abseil, of which 70 feet is free hanging!

While this promises to be a fun adventure-packed activity, we also hope to raise lots of money to help local children and young people with cancer, and their families. By signing up all participants are pledging to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. By raising £100, you could help fund 4 hours of one-to-one support with a PASIC Family Support Worker.

To help with your fundraising ahead of the event we’ll be on hand to support you.
