Help the Haven and Abseil Down Walsall Art Gallery!

In 2016, The Haven took on a skydiving World Record Attempt, this year, they are looking for daring individuals to join them in an Abseil down Walsall Art Gallery on Saturday 11th March as part of their Empurple Week.

Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, or your new year’s resolution was to be more adventurous, then this really is a challenge for you. It is a 110ft climb down, which, to give you an idea, is as a tall as the largest blue whale ever recorded.

There is no experience is necessary as all training is given. The event is perfect for individuals, groups of friends or corporate challenges. What’s more, if you enter a team of 5 or more you will be placed into a prize draw to win a voucher for another exciting day out! It’s just £35 to register, and spaces are limited.

“We are really excited for this event, after the success of our Sky Dive last year we feel that this is the next great challenge for Team Haven in 2017.” Says Hannah Boote, Fundraising Officer at The Haven.
