Rainbows Abseil

Saturday 13th October 2018

Have a head for heights or feeling adventurous? Challenge yourself, make a difference to the children, young people and families who rely on Rainbows. Adventurous participants will get the rare opportunity to abseil from the second highest cathedral tower in the country. Those doing the abseil will climb the 189 steps of the historic 212ft high tower to the top and enjoy perhaps the finest views of Derby city center. They will then make an exciting descent back to the ground by abseiling down the outside of the tower. The abseil is available from 9am until 7pm on the day, and you’ll be asked your preferred time slot when booking. Interested in taking part in this fantastic challenge event? sign up today via the Rainbows website.
