Calling all daredevils and those with a head for heights... we're excited to announce that our Derby Cathedral Abseil is returning in 2022, with a NEW DATE!

This adrenaline-fuelled challenge will give you the chance to climb the 199 steps to the top of one of Derby's iconic landmarks, the Cathedral Tower. Once you've reached the summit our trained team will harness you up, before you climb over the edge and begin your 212ft abseil back down. As you reach the top of the Cathedral tower, take in the breath-taking views of Derby and don't forget to smile for the camera on your way down.

Our Derby Cathedral Abseil really is a not-to-be missed event. Sign up today and we’ll see you Saturday 7 May 2022.

How to sign up?

With abseiling slots available between 8.30am and 5.30pm, taking part in our Derby Cathedral Abseil couldn't be easier.  Simply hit the "Book Now" button, follow the steps, select your preferred time slot and pay your £20 registration fee, which helps support our vital work in Derby and across the East Midlands.

This event always proves popular with children (11+) and adults alike, so be quick - you won't want to miss out! To find out more or to talk to us about the Derby Cathedral Abseil, please email our Events Fundraiser.

Fundraising for Rainbows:

All participants taking part in the Derby Cathedral Abseil are asked to pay a £20 registration costs when signing up, and pledge to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. 

By raising the £100 in sponsorship, you could help fund two-hours of Music Therapy here at the hospice. As many of our children don’t have the language skills they need to express their emotions or may not find it easy to talk about their feelings, music therapy provides an ideal space in which to express themselves.  

If you go that one step further with your fundraising, and raise £260, you could help fund five hours of vital nursing care here at Rainbows, while smashing the sponsorship target and raising £300 could fund a day's worth of housekeeping costs, helping to keep our children and young people free from infection.

To help with your fundraising ahead of the event, we have a dedicated team of Community Fundraisers who are on hand to offer advice and support – and once you’ve signed up, one of the Team will be in touch to offer you support and advice.
