Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service is working in partnership with the Jurassic Skyline in Weymouth to offer a unique experience to members of the public to help raise funds for charity.
Successful applicants will take part in a controlled abseil from the top of the Jurassic Skyline on Sunday 22 April 2018 (date subject to weather ). The original date of 4 March had to be postponed due to inclement conditions.
The Jurassic Skyline is a great viewing attraction in Weymouth, rising gently to a staggering 53 metres (174ft). Once at the top, there are stunning views of the Jurassic Coast, Nothe Fort, Portland and Weymouth Harbour.
All of the firefighters and volunteers will be providing their time on a voluntary basis whilst off duty, and Merlin Entertainments – who run the Jurassic Skyline and Sealife Centre – have provided the use of the Jurassic Skyline free of charge to hold this charity event.
