Abseil Adventure!

Fundraisers are preparing to go to new heights to raise money for Southmead Hospital Charity.

Our sponsored abseil event is on Saturday 8 September and will see fundraisers of all ages descend 100 feet down the side of Southmead Hospital's Brunel Building. 

Adrian Brown, our Corporate and Community Manager, said: “The Amazing Abseil Adventure is a great challenge for people to take on and a unique opportunity to climb down one of Bristol’s most notable buildings.  They'll also get to enjoy the magnificent views of North Bristol and all the way to the Severn Crossing.

“This is the second year we have held this event - last year's abseil raised a fantastic £32,000 for the charity. 

"This year abseilers will once again be raising money for our Prostate Cancer Care Appeal or another area of the hospital close to their heart - it's a great day and we'll have a lot of fun!"

Our Prostate Cancer Care Appeal aims to raise £2million to purchase two surgical robots for the hospital to meet growing demand, fund new diagnostic and treatment options and to support the training of the next generation of robotic surgeons - improving outcomes for men with prostate cancer. The first robot was purchased at the start of 2018, and the Appeal continues to raise funds for the second robot.
