Picnics were served during an extended interval, all within the beautiful Great Conservatory in Syon Park - the London home of the Duke of Northumberland.

This is the 22nd year we have presented opera in ...

RAG Abseil down the Spinnaker Tower

01 March 2014
abseiling down Spinnaker Tower
We recently held our first ever Abseil event at the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth on Saturday 1st March.

Soaring 170 metres above Portsmouth Harbour and the Solent, the Spinnaker Tower is taller than the London Eye, Blackpool Tower and Big Ben. Our brave group of abseilers descended from a terrifying 94m. The event was such a huge success with 35 participants getting involved in the unique abseil event!

The funds raised will help us to fund vital research into the causes of childhood cancers and improving treatments to save more young lives.

Thank you We would like to say a huge thank you to each and every one of our abseil participants...
