This is your chance to take this unique challenge to abseil 165ft SAS style, (i.e. freefall) from the Forth Rail Bridge onto the beach below.
Alzheimer Scotland has teamed up with the Rotary Club of South Queensferry who are organising the event for people who are brave and daring!
No previous experience is necessary to take part; it is suitable for everyone over the age of fourteen. Highly trained instructors from the Glasgow Climbing Centre will be there to ensure your abseil is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
We ask for a registration fee of £25 and a pledge from you to raise a minimum of £150 for Alzheimer Scotland. This will guarantee you a place at the abseil and we will provide you with sponsor forms, Just Giving information, fundraising tips and a stylish, breathable t-shirt or running vest to wear on the day, along with a temporary tattoo for added awareness!
All of our participants will be provided with sponsor forms, temporary face tattoo and of course a free awareness raising t-shirt to wear on the day. We can also help with any publicity that may help your fundraising along.
The Rotary Club will provide you with the appropriate sponsorship forms upon registration. For those setting-up an online giving page please do so with 'The Rotary Club of South Queensferry’ on Just Giving and not with Alzheimer Scotland. Following the event the Rotary Club will donate all of your sponsorship to Alzheimer Scotland, and once we have received it, we will send you a note of thanks.
