Climb or jump to support us

Join us on Saturday 8th June from 9:30am-6:00pm for this year's Sue Ryder 270 High Ropes Challenge.

The activities on offer will be High Ropes Course Two Hour Session, Low Ropes Course One Hour Session and the option to do a 18m high Freefall jump or a Leap of Faith Jump.

The High Ropes course has over 60 obstacles across seven routes, over five challenging levels. The High Ropes start from four meters on Level Two and go up all the way to a dizzying 18 metres tall on Level Six.

Please see the age and height restrictions below.

Alongside the climbing (and jumping), we’ll have a cake stall, food van, donut stand and face painter available on the day.

Your booking fee

Thanks to the wonderful team at 270 Climbing, your booking fee directly supports our care as a donation too!

Freefall or Leap of Faith Jumps are £10 per jump if pre-booked online or £20 on the day, with 100% of the booking fee going to Sue Ryder as a donation. For the High Ropes and Low Ropes, we also get 50% of the booking fee as a donation to support our care.
