It is with a heavy heart that, following the latest guidance on coronavirus (COVID-19) about avoiding public gatherings, we have decided to postpone the Lister Abseil Challenge which was due to take place on 2 May 2021. We have rebooked this event for Sunday 8th May 2022.

We have taken this decision as supporter safety continues to be our main priority.

All of our valued supporters will be guaranteed a space for the rescheduled event. If you are unable to take part on the new date we cannot offer a refund of the entry, but would be delighted to offer you a complimentary space for an alternative charity event (just let us know if any of our other challenges take your fancy).

We will send an official confirmation email of the new date in due course to our current participants, but please contact the team if you have any questions in the meantime.

The funds raised from the abseil and our other events will be supporting the amazing work undertaken in our hospitals – helping to fund extra medical equipment, support services, advanced staff training, refurbishments and cutting-edge research projects.

I am sure you will agree that our incredible NHS team are continuing to put others first and are going above and beyond to look after our patients and the community we serve. If you would like to leave a message of support and say thank you to our dedicated staff members by making a donation, you can do so by visiting - some of the funds donated will be used to provide care packages for our frontline staff as part of our new #HereForEachOther campaign.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused from postponing the event and we would once again like to express how hugely grateful we are for your ongoing support to our hospitals.

Take on an epic challenge and rappel down the 11 storey Lister tower block in our Lister Abseil challenge this May.

Abseil 2022

Test your nerves and face your fears in this thrilling experience, where you will make a controlled decent down a vertical drop. This is a very rewarding challenge that requires very little prior experience or training  (don't worry, you'll receive a little training from the experts from Dolomite on the day!). Abseiling is perfect for those with a sense of adventure who fancy a challenge, with a guarantee that it will get your adrenaline flowing and your heart pumping!

Participants must be 18+ but there's no upper age limit, you just must be in good general health, with a reasonable fitness level!

On the day we will have a d.j, food and refreshments, so bring plenty of people along to watch you complete this brave feat.
