Abseil down the Europa Hotel - PLEASE READ
« on: August 07, 2012 »

Please could I ask you to support this very deserving Charity, based in Downpatrick, by taking advantage of the opportunity to Abseil down the Europa Hotel in Belfast.



Abseiling down the Europa will probably be the most Adrenalin Pumping experience you will take part in this Summer!!!

I will be signing up for this and hopefully we can turn this opportunity into another NI-Wild day out.  There are two dates available (Sat 8th September and Sun 23rd Sept).

It only costs £15

Which is refundable if you raise over £115 in sponsorship, although I would be encouraging you to let Home-Start keep the £15 too  ;)

There is also a Weekend away for 2
for the person who raises the most sponsorship!


Please download a Sponsorship Form from here or email me on dowser@ni-wild.co.uk and I will send you one for printing.

You will also need to confirm your place by calling one of the girls from Home-Start below:

Dorothy - 07590 849 280
Imelda - 07590 849 278
Sharon - 07590 849 281
or email downpatrick@homestartdd.org.uk

Click here to visit Home-Start's Website:  http://www.homestartdd.org.uk/

And here to see how they help the local community: http://www.homestartdd.org.uk/about-home-start.html

Anybody thinking about having a go at this?  I will wait to hear from you before I select the date I'm going to do it.

Its something I would like to do, but I've a few questions

Is there a minimum sponsorship that needs to be raised or can you turn up and pay £15 to do it? (Not that I'm not wanting to raise money but I've got my own charity event to try and raise money for)

What days would it be? Saturdays?

It's just the £15 entry fee.  No sponsorship would be required after that but obviously Home-Start would be keen for you to raise something.

What days would it be? Saturdays?

Dates are in the original post above.  You can choose between: Saturday 8th September or Sunday 23rd September.

Congrats on your University Place by the way.  Nice one!!!

I like the Sunday the 23rd. What date are you planing on doing it?

Thanks very much, money will be less so I'll need to stop buying my gear now and start making it  ;D

I was going to wait and see what dates everybody else was considering but the response has been surprisingly low so far  :(

If I thought you were keen on Sunday 23rd I'll do it then.  I can go either date but would like to go along with a few NI-Wilders for a bit of Craic.

I'm hoping there will be a few more takers over the next few days or we will have to think about changing the name of the site to NI-Tame  :D

Sunday would suit me best with work, but if everybody else wants to do Saturday then so be it.

Yeah, it surprises me how little some people get involved. I think its easy to ignore it unless your asked directly.

Lets aim for Sunday 23rd but we can wait and see who else is interested over the next couple of days.  If I get a chance I'll PM a few members this evening and put them on the spot  ;D

I'm up for it, 23rd suits me, but like Oisin i've another event i'm fundraising for so not likely to raise much money so If they run out of slots I'll gladly pass mine onto a more worthy entrant.

Shame you didn't go for the one on the 8th...

I'm working on that one, belaying... I could have dropped safely lowered you over the edge...

May be working on the 23rd one, but it's rescue practice the day before in Fermanagh and I'll probably be knackered and in bed...

I can't believe that from NI-Wild's 870 members only Oisin, LandyLiam and myself were interested in having a go at this and raising a bit of money for charity at the same time  ???
