About Charity Abseils

We provide charity abseils and abseil events for all groups and set ups, from buildings, to dams and rock faces. All of the abseil events come with insurance, risk assessments, all equipment and photo’s at no extra change.

All of our staff our international qualified and with years of experience, they also hold a first aid certificate as standard. All charity abseil events will have a minimum of two staff per abseil line.

Prices for our charity abseils start from £750 for two instructors and 50 spaces for people to abseil. All of the insurance, risk assessments, all equipment and photo’s come as part of that cost – so there’s no surprises. If the abseil event is smaller, the cost might be less and if the abseil event is very unusual, or far away and requires extra elements such as catering, changing rooms, marquess, a second abseil rope etc then the cost of the abseil might be more.

CharityAbseil.org.uk was set up by Dave Talbot to provide the best service and high standards when running charity abseils and Abseil Events.

Prices start at £750 for one rope with two instructors and 50 places available to abseil.


Charity Abseils

Charity Abseil put on yet another fantastic abseil for us at England’s highest waterfall – Canonteign Falls. Dave’s team were brilliant, and the event ran extremely smoothly from start to finish with 100% smiley abseiler faces coming back to me when they came to pick up their certificates afterwards. Every single member of the Charity Abseil team were very professional and put each one of our participants at ease, creating personal and memorable experiences for our very happy abseilers! Thank you Dave, and see you next year.

Who Am I?

Abseil Instructor

About the Owner

Ever since I can remember I have been playing around in the outdoors. I was brought up in the small village of Tytherington just north of Bristol and for me these were happy years: working on farms, riding mountain bikes and seeing how many cuts and bruises one could sustain in an hour away from my parents. At the age of 5 I went on a family skiing holiday to the famous ski resort of Kitzbuehel in Austria and (although this was my first ski holiday) I remember breaking away from my parents and taking the lift to the top of the world cup downhill racing ski slope ‘The Hahnenkamm”. Trying to ski down this incredibly steep slope was a bit dicey to say the least with my 3 days of ski school experience but I succeeded in making it down the slope in a mach 10 snow-plough – wildly out of control – but with a smile from ear-to-ear. From that moment on, the mountains, adventure and challenge has been part of my daily life.

As I got older I joined the scouts and learnt more about the natural environment – going on expeditions and camping trips around the UK. In my teenage years I raced motocross at a high level before a bad injury led me to the decision to start rock climbing. At the age of 18 I decided not to study architecture at university but to instead follow my heart and passion and work in the outdoor industry – something that I have never looked back on!!

Best Projects
One of best projects was working for the BBC on the Isle of Wight. I had to abseil over 100m down into chalk tunnels that ran beneath the island and find a way out. The tunnels hadn’t been explored since the 2nd world war and very little was known about what I would find. I ended up making a film for the BBC about what was down there – a great experience.
