Charity abseil challenge this weekend


Date: 17th April, 2018

The final plans are being put into place for the Jurassic Skyline Charity abseil in Weymouth, organised by firefighters from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Technical rescue specialists from Weymouth fire station will be helping 30 members of the public to abseil from the iconic seafront landmark this Sunday (22 April), with sponsorship benefiting five nominated charities.

The event had been scheduled to take place last month but had to be postponed due to bad weather.

Firefighter Justin Rolls said: “We invited local people to apply for the challenge, and 30 have been selected, ranging in ages from 21 to 74. Each is raising a minimum of £200 for our charities, and some may also raise additional funds for their own chosen causes. It’s a fantastic opportunity to do something pretty unique, and we are very grateful to the team at Jurassic Skyline for allowing us to use the attraction free of charge, while also providing support staff on the day.”

He added: “All of the firefighters and volunteers running the challenge are giving up their own time to support the event, and our thanks also go to the Dorset Abilities Group, as they are opening up their base at the Old Ferry Terminal building to provide those taking part with toilets, a rest area and light refreshments.”

Tamsin Mutton-McKnight, general manager of Jurassic Skyline, said: “We are so pleased to have been given the opportunity to work together with the Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service to support the charity abseil. We are proud to be involved with an event which is bringing members of the community together to raise funds for these worthy local causes.”

The abseil will benefit the Fire Fighters Charity, SafeWise, Merlin’s Magic Wand, the Sea Life Trust and Julia’s House Hospice –  while each individual participant is raising money in their own right, there is also a central donations page for anyone wanting to support the challenge.
