The abseil benefits both the When You Wish Upon a Star Uk charity and Derby Cathedral. Adventurous participants will climb the 189 steps of the tower before taking on the descent from the top of the Cathedral.

We will be welcoming to the Cathedral: 

Doug Eunson & Sarah Matthews and Bob Fox

Calling all daredevils and those with a head for heights, come and join us at Derby Cathedral as our charity abseil returns in October.

Our abseil is available from 9am until 5.30pm and you'll be asked your preferred time slot when booking. This event always proves popular with children and adults alike, so be quick - you won't want to miss out!

There's a cost of £20 to sign up and all participants are required to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship.
