Wells Cathedral Jubilee Charity Abseil

Abseil from the iconic Wells Cathedral in celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Event and raise vital funding for the SOS Africa, Wells Cathedral and The Forever Friends Appeal - RUH Bath...

We are delighted to announce that SOS Africa’s 124ft abseil challenge will return to Wells Cathedral on the 4th, 5th, 10th & 12th June 2022. Back by popular demand, following the successes of the 2019 event during which 350 brave fundraisers raised an incredible £60,000, throughout this year's Queen's Platinum Jubilee Event, abseilers will descend from the North-West tower dressed in royal attire.

The freefall abseil was initially scheduled to take place in autumn 2021 but had to be postponed due to rapidly increased COVID-19 infection rates. Organisers, SOS Africa and abseil instructors, Aardvark Endeavours hope that this summer event will give everyone something to look forward to and the opportunity to support 3 causes close to many of our hearts: education, heritage and healthcare.
