Want to raise £15000 for your charity?


In the past, Pinnacle Challenge has helped charities raise thousands of pounds through charity abseils. Our qualified team will assess any building at the earliest convenience for its safety and accessibility. Based on that assessment, Pinnacle Challenge will provide all the appropriate staff, equipment and fun on the day. Your fundraisers are trained on the spot, escorted to the roof and seen safely back to the ground by our staff.
As well as all the safety equipment, Pinnacle Challenge will set up a covered area and cordon off both the training and landing areas with posts and bunting, providing a totally professional image to all your followers. We endeavour to promote your organisation whereever possible.
All you, as the charity, needs to do is sign up as many daredevil volunteers as possible and collect their fundraising money on the day. Pinnacle Challenge can work to any time table that suits you, but we would recommend that you allow yourself at least eight weeks to get people involved and make the most of this opportunity.

FAQ's


Q: Where do I send my registration form?
A: Send your completed form with registration fee to Pinnacle Challenge Limited, 22 Montague Road, Warwick, CV34 5LJ - don't forget to add the £5.00 photo fee to ensure that you have a brilliant picture of you stepping into the air...

Q: Must I pre-register or can I just turn up on the day?
A: You must pre-register, the sooner the better, if you turn up expecting to sign up on the day you will probably be dissapointed.

Q: I have a dissability, can I still take part?
A: Yes, if it is physically possible, then we will let you abseil, the best thing is talking to us then we can make a decision together.

Q: Do I have to raise money for charity?
A: Ultimately no you don't, but that would negate the purpose of the event, If you don't like asking for sponsorship you caould always sign up and make a donation to the MS Society yourself.

Q: Can I keep the money for myself?
A: Of course you can, but we will be checking with all the charities that have been supported that they have received the money. At the end of the day it would be stealing from your friends and family.

Q: What If I've never abseiled before?
A: No problem, we will give you all the support and encouragenent you need. You will be given full training on the day.

Q: Is abseiling safe?
A: Totally, You are abseiling on 1 rope and we control your descent on a second rope, this means if you do anything wrong, our professional and qualified instructors can take control.

Q: How old do I need to be?
A: You can climb and abseil from any age but for our events you must be at least 14 years old, all under 18s must have their registration form
countersigned by a parent/guardian who must be present at the abseil. Special allowance may be made for under 14s with previous experience, subject to a prior discussion and a parent/guardian taking part with them.

Q: What should I wear?
A: Compfortable clothes without too many dangly bits/tassles to get caught. No Skirts or high heels. Shoes must be non marking and must not be able to fall off. Stilettos are bad...

Q: Can I bring spectators?
A: Yes, bring your friends to watch, support and cheer, being environmental, we would urge you to car share.

Q: Will the weather affect the abseil?
A: Not very often, you can abseil in all but the worst wind. If there is lightning you are welcome on the roof, but our instructors will definately run for cover and would ask you to do the same.
