The Drop360 Abseil Challenge takes place at the i360 Brighton. Before beginning your challenge you will be taken up to the viewing platform, which is 162m (531ft) high. You will have time to admire 360-degree views of Brighton and the South Coast as you wait for your turn to drop. Once it's your turn to take on this incredible 162m free-descent, you will be guided every step of the way by a professional instructor.

Prior to your descent, you will be attached to safety lines secured to the pod and your safety system checked by your instructor. Using the safest rigging system conceivable, you will be asked to lean backwards, letting the ropes take your weight. The instructors will let you know when to take that leap of faith, and away you go!

Descending through the air at speed, you will be treated to amazing sea views as you journey toward the ground. Once complete, you will be assisted by another instructor, who will unclip you from the system and help you to remove your safety equipment.

This event will start at approximately 6:30pm - timings will be confirmed nearer the event date.

By taking part, you will receive:

  • A fundraising pack
  • Raystede t-shirt - proudly show off that you're part of #TeamRaystede
  • Support leading up to the event
  • Tips and advice to help you achieve your fundraising target
  • On the day support and volunteers to cheer you on
  • A medal on completion

To take part in this thrilling challenge there's a £25 registration fee to secure your place and we ask all participants to raise a £250 minimum sponsorship. Did you know that for every £250 you raise it could buy a month's worth of food, toys, and medication for two of our rescue dogs?

We rely on sponsorship and voluntary donations to care for the animals that come to Raystede. Through no fault of their own, they depend on us to look after them. Together we can give these injured and unwanted animals and make sure they get all the love they deserve. An element of your sponsorship will cover the cost of the event.
