Abseil for GWH


If you want to be added to a waiting list to participate, then please email the charity team on gwh.fundraising@nhs.net. The waiting list will only guarantee a place if we have participants drop out ahead of the day.

Do you dare take on the 90ft drop at the Great Western Hospital!

Why not do something amazing for your local hospital and support any ward, department or appeal?  

Join us on Saturday 16th September!

Entry for the abseil costs £20.00 and we ask that each participant raises a minimum of £80 of fundraising so that we can make the event profitable. 

This years Brighter Futures abseil will be raising money to support the Way Forward Programme at the Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  This exciting programme of development will see the opening of a brand new Urgent Care Treatment to cope with the increasing numbers of hospital users, it will integrate and locate all emergency services within the hospital into one area creating a hub for emergency excellence and finally, on the newly acquired expansion land a specialist rehabilitation centre will be built bringing a significant investment to the town.

We have slots available between 10am - 4pm on Saturday 16th September.  You don't just have to do this on your own, if you have a group of friends, colleagues or family interested why not get together and take on the challenge as a team!
