Event Date

25 September 2021

We are looking for brave, animal lovers to take part in this breath-taking abseil off the 115 ft high clifftop. It takes place on Saturday 25th September from 10 a.m. There will be 2 ropes running at once, so race a friend to the bottom as you experience the amazing sea views.

The abseil will be in celebration of World Animal Day. It will be fully supervised with safety gear provided and expert instructors to help you complete your challenge. There will also be Covid-safe measures in place. Check out our Covid Promise by clicking here.

The registration fee is £20 and we ask that you raise £150 in sponsorship. Did you know every £150 raised could help buy a month's worth of food, toys and medication for one of our kennel dogs like 1 year old Docker below.

Places are limited, and we are currently offering an Early-bird half price registration fee, so sign up today by following this link.

Perhaps you could rope your colleagues into taking part and do our Peacehaven abseil as a team building activity? For groups of 10 the fundraising target would be £100 per person.

After signing up for the challenge you will receive:

  • A welcome pack
  • A Raystede T-shirt
  • A kit list
  • Support leading up to the challenge
  • Moral support on the day of the abseil
  • Medal on completion

If you need any help booking onto the event or have any questions, you can call the fundraising team on 01825 840747 or email fundraising@raystede.org.

* Please only sign up if you are aged over 10 and weigh under 15 stone. Please note that anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

By taking on this challenge and raising vital sponsorship you are helping us to rescue, re-home and provide shelter to the animals that need us. Many of the animals that come to Raystede have experienced challenges in life, and so in honour of World Animal Day, we are asking you to take on this exciting abseil challenge.

Sign up to our abseil today. Take the leap and give animals the best life possible.
