2018 Family Abseil Challenge
Helping us ignite the potential of children
Abseiling is a thrilling, adrenaline-fuelled experience which will see you make a controlled descent of Ramada Encore (there are 7 floors!). You will need an adventurous spirit and a head for heights and we will do the rest with professional equipment and on-the-day training.
Conquer your fears, enjoy a spectacular view and help support free festival activity in 2019.
Why we need you…
The money raised from this event will help enable The Spark Arts for Children to continue to create unforgettable arts experiences for children aged 0 – 13 in Leicestershire. Gaining access to the Arts is hugely valuable to a child's wellbeing and is crucial for imagination, self-expression and creativity. Our work offers children the opportunity to discover and enjoy the arts as audiences, as learners and as creators of their own art.
