We have now SOLD OUT. If you are interested in taking on an amazing adventure for St Barnabas House check out our adrenaline events for ideas including an abseil over Peacehaven’s white cliffs. Good luck to all our Abseilers who are helping to give patients and their loved ones the care and support we would all want for our own families.

You don’t need any experience, all training is provided on the day, and you’ll be supported by a qualified instructor… so you can enjoy the ride and the views.
