Spinnaker Tower Abseil 2023!

Written by Lucy Hill

Saturday 9th September 2023 was a beautiful, sunny day and Team Orange had a fantastic time at our Spinnaker Tower Abseil!

With beautiful views across the Solent and, on a clear day, all the way over to the Isle of Wight, this is an experience our participants won’t forget!

The Spinnaker Tower stands at a mighty 100m, and it was so inspiring to watch our incredible team of 20 epic abseilers take on this amazing challenge, and descend 100 metres down this iconic landmark for Challengers. We even had three on the day participants!

Every penny from this wonderful day supports our work at Challengers, and we are delighted to say that the Team Orange raised an amazing £8,179.75 at this event. This could fund many joyous days of play, fun and laughter at Challengers!

Thank you to each and every one of you for being Team Orange legends and well done on this amazing achievement!

We have sorted through our photos from the day and they have been uploaded on our Facebook album here: Spinnaker Tower Abseil Photos
