THRILL SEEKERS WANTED
TO ABSEIL THE EUROPA HOTEL
The Adventure Charity Abseil will take place on Sunday 28th April, down the 13-storey, 51-metre Europa Hotel.
This is an exciting event aimed at those who seek thrill and adventure to escape the routine of everyday life, while raising money for a great cause. The aim of The Northern Ireland’s Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust is to fulfil the dreams of terminally ill, life limited and deserving children, by taking them on a trip of a lifetime to see Santa at his home in Lapland and other destinations.
On our trips the joy experienced by the children, many of whom bravely endure great suffering in their daily lives, was pure magic.
We would kindly ask each abseiler to try to raise a minimum of £100 through sponsorship. We cover all of the necessary insurance. (please bring any sponsorship money you have with you on the day).
On the day of the abseil we meet in the lobby of the hotel.
Closer to the time we will advise you of your registration time.
Once you arrive you will get registered, then you will watch a safety and instructional video. Following this , you will be taken to get the harness and helmets and gloves fitted. Once you are fully kitted out, you will be taken up to the roof by a BAC staff.
The time between registration and actual abseil can depend on many factors, but usually you would be abseiling between 45 minutes and an hour after arrival.
Maximum weight – 18 stone.
Minimum age – 14 years old.
