We run all types of adventure events for businesses and charities that can be used for fun or as a way of raising money. A charity abseil is a great first adventure event – running over a single day or two days. Another option of a similar event we run is a zip wire.
We run charity abseils and abseil events of all shapes and sizes. We provide everything from equipment and risk assessments, to marquees, catering and photographers.
Organising an abseil event is a great way to raise some money and awareness for the company or charity you are representing. On average, a charity abseil event will raise between £4,000 and £60,000 per day.
We have over 15 years of experience in the industry in order to make sure your charity abseil and abseil event runs smoothly. Our instructors are qualified to the highest standards through the AMI (Association of Mountaineering Instructors) and all of our events come with photos – free of charge.
WHAT WE DO
We have years of experience working on abseil events with charities, film crews (as seen on the BBC) and TV shows. Your event will get the best service delivered, by the highest qualified instructors in the UK. We provide marquees, risk assessments, site visits, insurance, event photos, all equipment, changing rooms and anything else to meet your abseil event needs. We can run abseiling events with a single rope or multiple ropes depending on your event size.
Our events are superb for raising awareness and getting media attention. Over the years we’ve had most major newspapers, the BBC, ITV and local papers doing stories on our events. For more information on our media and film involvement see – http://davetalbot.net/adventurecontent/ – and see the videos below.
Prices start at £850 for one rope, two instructors and 50 places available to abseil. We have simple price plans for our events. This gives clear information on the number of instructors needed and all the costs are clear from the start – allowing you to plan your event with ease.
WHAT OUR CHARITY ABSEIL CLIENTS SAY
Here at The Ipswich Hospital Charity we organised a Charity Abseil, Dave and his team were professional in the lead up, ensuring our estates team here at the hospital were happy, giving me in the charity team the information I needed for participants and tips on how to organise the days.
On the weekend they were fully committed to the safety of our staff, volunteers and most importantly the participants. The sense of comradery and banter between the participants and Dave’s team was felt by all. Would definitely recommend them to others thinking of hosting a charity event we raised over £70,000 from the event and will certainly be looking to them for any future extreme events we are planning.
You couldn’t ask for a better team of people to run a charity abseil for you. Dave was extremely professional, both during and in the run up to the event. No problem was insurmountable and he did everything in his power to make sure the day ran smoothly. The reassuring manner of Dave’s team meant that each and every one of the 33 abseilers made it safely down the building and as a result, we raised over £7000 for our charity. Fantastic!
We asked Dave and his team to organise St George’s Hospital Charity’s first Abseil event.. It was a fantastic day for everyone involved; both staff and our supporters who bravely took on the challenge! Dave and his team were wonderful and made it incredibly simple for us to put on the event due to the wealth of experience they have in challenge events. Not only that, Dave and his team inspired confidence in all of our supporters who had signed up for the Abseil, ensuring that all of them (even the most nervous) felt completely safe, secure and managed to complete the challenge. The feedback we’ve received from all of our supporters has been extremely positive and we would thoroughly recommend Dave’s service’s to any charities who are considering holding a similar event.
Dave Talbot put on yet another fantastic abseil for us at England’s highest waterfall – Canonteign Falls. Dave’s team were brilliant, and the event ran extremely smoothly from start to finish with 100% smiley abseiler faces coming back to me when they came to pick up their certificates afterwards. Every single member of the Mountain Vision team were very professional and put each one of our participants at ease, creating personal and memorable experiences for our very happy abseilers! Thank you Dave, and see you next year.
I could not have wished for a more professional company than Dave Talbot Adventures when planning our charity abseil. The initial organisation from Dave himself and Mark, Max and David, our crew for the day made the whole experience the success it turned out to be, with their friendly professionalism and attention to every detail. They will certainly be my first point of call for any future adventurous charitable pursuits! Thanks to everyone involved.
PEACE OF MIND
All safety equipment, risk assessments, insurance and even a practice abseil and individual coaching is included in the price – so you don’t have to worry. We will even take photos of the event free of charge and give you them to use for marketing for your next charity event.
We will come to you. It might be a bridge, a rock wall, building, tower, or even a waterfall. If it goes down we can abseil it. With years of experience working at locations across the globe – we can offer advice before you book, to make sure you have everything in the right place for your charity abseil.
Our instructors are the best in the business. It’s not about sending someone off a cliff edge, it’s about an unforgettable experience and helping people enjoy that. Smiles, coaching, laughter, photos and more are what come as standard with every abseil event.
INFORMATION ON A CHARITY ABSEIL EVENT
If you’re a charity and you are thinking of running a charity abseil event then here’s some top information to help you get off the ground.

In the world of climbing, abseiling is a way of getting back down what you’ve just climbed up. You use a rope to lower yourself down. You control how fast or slow you descend whilst being on an additional safety rope controlled by an instructor. It’s a great personal challenge in complete safety. Most people don’t realise that even if you let go of the rope you won’t fall. This is due to the two rope system that we use to keep you and your team safe.
