Take your place in history and conquer the Alnwick Castle abseil whilst raising vital funds for Northumberland Estates’ Charity of the Year - The People’s Kitchen.
The abseil will take place on the 23 and 24 September at Alnwick Castle. The first challenge is climbing the 84 steps on the spiral staircase to the top of the castle keep. Once at the top you will abseil down the castle walls on a 100ft rope, taking in the beautiful views of the grounds and pastures along the way.
Participants will be guided in this event by expert activity providers, Adventure Northumberland, who will ensure you are fully harnessed and equipped with the know-how to complete the challenge.
All proceeds from the event will go to The People’s Kitchen. The Newcastle-based charity aims to make life better for vulnerable people; working to enable people to move off the streets and then provide food, furniture, and bedding to those in need. They also offer friendship and professional services to improve mental well-being.
Catherine Neil, Head of Alnwick Castle Ventures, said: “There is great anticipation for the charity abseil which will give participants a unique perspective of Alnwick Castle. In doing so, those taking part will be able to financially help The People’s Kitchen, a wonderful charity that provides brilliant support for vulnerable people. We expect plenty of daredevils to sign up but this is a charity event perfect for those who have never considered abseiling before as well those who are well-used to seeking thrills and spills.”
Northumberland Estates will also donate a family ticket for all participants to Alnwick Castle on the day of the event.
