Trinity House has 'limited spaces left' at its three quincentenary charity abseil events

To mark 500 years of serving and caring for mariners and their

dependents, the Corporation of Trinity House is holding charity abseil

events at three of its lighthouses

The events will raise funds for the

Corporation’s charity, which annually contributes around £4million to maritime


Some of the organisations the Corporation benefits are

household names including the Association of Sail Training Organisations (ASTO), Jubilee Sailing Trust, The Mary Rose

Trust and Seafarers UK but it also regularly contributes to little known

charities that do great work in and around the maritime industry.

The fundraising abseil events are being held on:

  • Saturday 5 July at Southwold (Suffolk) lighthouse,
  • Friday 11 July at Nash Point (Glamorgan) lighthouse, and
  • Saturday 19 July at Portland Bill (Dorset) lighthouse.

Each event will run from 10am to 4pm.

Places at the abseiling events are strictly limited to a maximum of

50, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The challenges are for over 18s only.

Organisers say there are still a limited number of places left at each location.

To register please download the registration form and return it, with your registration fee of £30, to Phillip Cruddace via or by post to him at Trinity House, The Quay, Harwich, CO12 3JW.
