Our abseil is back at the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on the 4th August. Abseil down the largest sculpture in the UK, a massive 262 feet high!

You'll get fantastic views of East London and the world famous Olympic Park before beginning your thrilling descent back to solid ground! We are hoping to get a team of 30 brave abseilers taking part in this event to help us raise £10,000 to fund the vital services offered by St Joseph's.
