HOW TO ORGANISE A CHARITY ABSEIL EVENT
How to organise a charity abseil event. If you’re interested in running a charity abseil event then this article will give you the information you need to set one up.
A charity abseil event is a great way to raise money for charity, usually making on average between £4,000 and £40,000 a day depending on location and the number of participants abseiling. Not only is it a great way to raise money, a charity abseil event is also a fantastic way of marketing your company or charity and getting some media coverage – this is often forgotten about and over looked but adds massive value to the event.
If you’re an individual looking to organise a charity abseil event then the best place to start is by contacting the charity that you wish to fund raise for and asking them if they want to get involved. If the charity wants to get involved, then they can help advertise the event and find extra participants. If the charity doesn’t want to help or already has a full fundraising calendar then consider getting a group of you together as this will work out cheaper per person.
If you’re a company or a charity and want to organise a charity abseil event then it’s a very easy process for yourselves as you have access to many potential participants through the office you work in, social media or by advertising in the local area. Even on the day of the event, people watching the abseil take place will want to have a go and will often ask if they can. This is another great way of adding an extra few people and bringing in more money and awareness for the charity.
We provide everything that you need to be able to run a charity abseil event but the first thing you have to do is find a venue that is suitable to host a charity abseil event. Abseils can be run nearly anywhere that is steep enough to drop a rope down. However the most commonly used abseil locations are buildings as these are in urban areas and allow easy access for media, participants and allow simple access to the top and bottom of the abseil rope. Local cliffs also work well but if you live in London then these are not a common sight!! More and more abseil events are unusual or extremely high to set their event apart from others. Don’t be afraid to think about different ideas other than a building or cliff face – consider a dam, viaduct or bridge into free space, indoor abseils inside tall buildings, disused lift shaft or even down waterfalls!
What an epic day. Dave gave us an amazing day on Wintours leap. We covered more than I could have hoped. Dave understood exactly what our objectives of the day were, excellent value for money. Dave was the most professional, and clearly knew his stuff.
Dave and his team hosted Noah’s Ark Charity Dangle event Sunday 16th October 2016 from Newport Transporter Bridge and we couldn’t have picked a better team of instructors to help us..
All of the guides were extremely supportive and had the groups best interest at the forefront of everything we did, they were also very knowledgeable about the mountains and what lay ahead of us. This is the first time we have used Dave but definitely not the last!
Just wanted to say a very big thanks to yourself, Dave and Marcus for a brilliant day yesterday! Great success! As a district of 12 stores allowing us to do the Abseil at Peel Tower we will of raised around £4,500 for comic relief!
Highly recommended 🙂 Dave was a great guide, super fun and a good photographer too, capturing all the best bits of our expedition.
The best rock climbing instruction I’ve ever had. Extremely clear and engaging.
I just wanted to add that the quality of instruction was actually more than excellent! I learned loads of things that were very empowering and challenging, while always feeling very safe and in a friendly atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed my day. Many thanks to Dave!
I will happily tell all my friends that it is one of the best things I have ever had the good fortune to do.
Dave, was excellent. He manages to combine an inspirational passion for climbing with very knowledgeable advice and instruction and an unerring eye for safety.
It has been an amazing experience. A gigantic sincere Thank you to Dave for his care, effort and lovely sense of humor! He made us really happy.
Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic abseiling service from you guys yesterday. The feedback from all was what a professional and warmhearted company you are and even the very fearful felt safe and cared for and thanked you for your patience and reassurance.
It would be an understatement to say the Abberley Hall Clock Tower Abseil event exceeded my expectations.
