Charity Abseil from Swansea University Kilvey Building

Team photo

This summer, in celebration of Discovery’s 50th Anniversary, two locally based grass roots charities are giving past and present university staff and students, and the local community the opportunity to abseil from Swansea University’s Kilvey Building.

Following on from their successful Swansea Civic Centre Christmas Abseil, this exciting new fundraising event is brought to you by SOS Africa and the Swansea Siavonga Partnership, two African organisations founded with the support of the Swansea community and takes place on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th June from 9am to 5pm.

Standing at approximately 150ft tall, on a clear day the 10 storey halls of residence building provides a scenic view of the Swansea Bay Area and is the ideal height for both first-time and experienced abseilers. It is also a fantastic opportunity to confront fears and do something truly life changing for children in Africa.

And if that isn’t motivation enough, for every additional £50 a team raises over their £300 target they will receive an entry place into a draw to win TWO TICKETS FLIGHT TICKETS TO VISIT ONE OF OUR PROJECTS IN AFRICA! Likewise, entry places will be given for every additional £50 individual participants raise over their £50 target.

The fundraising event’s fancy dress theme “What I want to be when I grow up…” has been chosen because the invaluable funds raised at the sponsored abseil will enable many African children to fulfil their childhood dreams.

To enter a team of 6 or as an individual, all you have to do is email with your team name, team leader’s contact details and preferred abseil date/time. We will then provide you with a provisional time slot and sponsorship forms, which will be confirmed once your send in your £15 abseil deposit (per person). In addition to your deposit, all we ask is that each team raises a minimum of £300 for our causes or a minimum of £50 per individual.
