When: Saturday 19th October 2019

Will you abseil 100ft to help raise £1,000s for local people and their families?
Looking for an adrenaline fuelled charity challenge?
Brave new heights to support your local hospice at our first ever St Giles abseil.
Join us to turn the Green Man wall orange as you descend one of the tallest buildings in Birmingham. Enjoy unique views of Selfridges, Bullring and the Birmingham city centre skyline from the roof and sample local street food and traditional Irish pubs once you have returned to terra firma.
Bring along your friends and family to cheer you on and join in the celebrations after!
Your entry fee only covers the administration cost of the abseil. By asking friends and family to sponsor you, you could raise valuable funds that will help St Giles to continue to provide care and support free of charge to patients and their families.
How to get there
It’s just a short walk from New Street or Moor Street train station, and if travelling by car, there are two car parks nearby. If you want to travel with us, a free minibus will run from our hospice in Whittington. Return transport will be offered for a donation of £7 per person.
Places are available on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to book a place, please contact the fundraising team on 01543 432538 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re here for you… because you’re here for us
“My gran was my best friend and we all knew that she was nearing the end of her life.
Sarah took up running last year to support the work of St Giles after caring for her Gran and has since taken part in the Great North Run and the Rudolph Run to raise funds.
“Even though she was receiving the very best care it was a very daunting experience. But everybody was so nice to the family – they tried to make it seem as normal as possible to put us at our ease.
“On the day she passed away my family and I walked away from St Giles and, of course, we were very sad – but everybody at St Giles had worked so hard to make everything so lovely for my gran, we were so thankful.
“Ever since I have had such a passion for St Giles because the care they gave us all was so phenomenal.”
Join Sarah by fundraising for St Giles and help us to support local people and their families living with a potentially terminal illness.
