Charity abseil events

For a number of years Leasowe Lighthouse has been the venue for regular very successful charity abseil events. At a height of 101 feet, the building is not too daunting and offers an ideal opportunity for a novice to take up the challenge.

The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse (FOLL CIO) organise the event and invite anyone to participate. Each individual pays a non-refundable registration fee to FOLL CIO and is then able to tout for sponsorship to raise funds for his favourite charity. Several local charities regularly take part gathering together small groups of supporters to join the fun. It is a good way of raising surprising amounts of money and everyone has a good time.

The ropes are set up by AbseilUK which has all the necessary qualifications and insurance cover to satisfy requirements. Harnesses, helmets and gloves are provided and instructions given on the day. Abseilers need a certain level of fitness to climb up the 130 steps to the lamproom where they have to climb out through the window on to the balcony before stepping off and trusting the harness.

To date our youngest abseiler was 8 years old and the oldest 83 years!

A photograph is taken from the top as the abseiler steps down to start the descent and all successful participants are given a special abseil badge.

If you would like to take part or find out more about these events look out for announcements on our website and Facebook page or contact info@leasowelighthouse.co.uk or call 0151 353 0861
