Become A Hospice Hero And Abseil For St Catherine’s

Become A Hospice Hero And Abseil For St Catherine’s

St Catherine’s Hospice is calling all thrill-seekers to combat their fears and join them for their 100ft Hospice Hero Abseil.

The local hospice is returning with their exhilarating challenge on the outside of the Sandman Signature Hotel in Crawley, which will take place across two days on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th April 2019.

If you’re looking to add an extra element of excitement to the event, for the first time this year, you can abseil under the stars on the evening of Friday 5th April. Moonlit places are limited, so make sure you book your place soon to avoid missing out.

On Saturday, more opportunities are available to scale the wall in true Spiderman style and enjoy the expansive views from the Sandman Signature Hotel during the daytime.

Local businesses who dare to go over the edge are encouraged to enter teams and support their local hospice during the daytime on Friday 5th April. What’s more, if they enter a team of four, they’ll get a free place to challenge another colleague to take the plunge!

Bernard Harrington, who took part in the local hospice’s abseil in 2016 said: “The superhero abseil was fantastic! I decided to challenge myself to face my fears all whilst raising money for St Catherine’s. I was very nervous to begin with, but the whole day, from the welcoming smiles to the celebratory refreshments at the end, was amazing! I’d love to do it again.”

Louise Wise, Events Fundraiser at St Catherine’s said: “This exciting event is perfect for anyone who wants to challenge themselves, or perhaps even face their fears, whilst supporting their local hospice. Each hospice hero who goes over the edge for us will be helping to make sure we can be there for everyone who needs us in our local community.”

Registration for this exciting event is just £25. Abseilers will also be asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £195. Currently St Catherine’s can only reach one in three people who need them, but with your bravery, they can reach everyone who needs them when life comes full circle.

Places are limited so if you’re ready to join one of the most exhilarating events of the year, make sure you sign up soon.
