St David’s Hospice is on the lookout for supporters who would like to take on an adrenaline-fueled challenge and shout ‘I’m a Hospice Hero, Get me out of here!” on the way down!
Are you brave enough to follow in the footsteps of the celebrities and experience what it is like to abseil on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey?
On Sunday 5th September, a team of Hospice supporters will abseil 120ft down the vertical rock face at Holyhead’s Breakwater Park to raise valuable funds for the hospice.
At the top, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the park which is situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Anglesey coast.
Gwynedd and Anglesey Area Fundraiser Keri McKie, said:
“Are you ready to take the plunge? Many of us enjoyed watching the celebs take part in their first challenge, which was also based on the Island. We hope our Hospice Heroes can face their fears but with perhaps a little less drama than Jordan North’s experience!”
“Working in partnership with local company Aim Higher, the abseil is a safe and fun adrenaline filled challenge. No previous abseil experience is needed in order to take part.
“We are really looking forward to our abseil event as we have missed our supporters so much over the last 12 months. We can’t wait to get out there again and to see people across our community challenging themselves and achieving great things in support of the Hospice.”
The event is being organised to raise funds for St David’s Hospice, a local charity providing end-of-life care free of charge to the people of North West Wales. St David’s has recently opened a four-bed inpatient unit in Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley, Holyhead which has already made huge difference to people’s lives in the local area.
All entrants for the abseil must be over the age of 12 on the day to take part and all participants are required to complete a medical disclosure form prior to taking part.
Places for the Anglesey Abseil are very limited so early booking is advised. Registration costs £29 and the minimum sponsorship required is £100. Time slots start from 10am and bookable on registration.
