Take on a challenge and help us to continue proving vital care and support to people affected by cancer and life-limiting illness within our local community.

Whether it’s walking, running, swimming or even jumping from the sky, there’s loads of ways you can take part, have fun and raise funds for Blythe House Hospice! 

  


 

Abseil

Got a head for heights? Scared of heights but want to support a local charity? Then the Blythe House Hospice charity abseil is for you!

We're looking for people who are willing to get sponsored to abseil down Millers Dale Bridge on Sunday 15th April. With pillars and arches, spanning a narrow gorge over a river, Millers Dale provides one of the most spectacular abseil sites in the Peak District!

You don't need any previous experience, just to be aged over 10 and medically fit. We're asking for a £20 non-refundable registration fee to cover costs, and that you try and raise at least £75 in sponsorship. Anyone aged 10 upwards can sign up!

In return, we'll provide all the equipment you need, some amazing views across the Peak District, and people to cheer you on!

All of the funds you raise will go towards supporting people in the local community affected by cancer or life limiting conditions.

Want to help, but heights really aren't your thing? You can still support the abseil by sharing the poster, encouraging your friends to sign up and sponsoring them.
