Join Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, and abseil down the iconic Hardy’s Monument, near Dorchester, on Sunday 5 June, thanks to the kind permission of The National Trust.
This brand new and exciting challenge will give participants the chance to take in spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the Dorset countryside, as they descend 72ft down the iconic monument, while knowing they are raising money for the charity to provide invaluable support to the people it works with across the wide range of services.
The Hardy monument stands on an exposed location above the village of Portesham in Dorset. It was built in 1844 in memory of Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy, Flag Captain of HMS Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
Sharon Wells, events fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, said: “You will get a huge buzz from the excitement of your descent and the achievement of completing the challenge, knowing that you are helping Diverse Abilities provide invaluable support to children and adults with disabilities, and their families.”
To take part participants must be aged 8 years or older. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. No experience is required to take part as all participants will be trained by highly skilled professional abseil instructors, which will ensure the abseil is safe and enjoyable.
The entry fee is £10 person and minimum sponsorship is £100 per person. Or sign up as a team of four for a special price of £30 per team, saving £10.
