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.

WHO I AM 

Dave Talbot

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!!

EXTRAS

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.

I took part in a charity abseil for Dogs Trust at Canonteign Falls and had an absolutely amazing and exhilarating time, with top notch instructors. Not only were they thorough, professional and extremely, reassuringly, competent, they also made the whole experience really fun and enjoyable. Highly recommended…

My daughter and I had the most amazing opportunity to abseil off the Welsh landmark, the WMC, guided down by Dave Talbot and his team. They were wonderful, professional, friendly and most of all, so very supportive of me with my fear of heights… I have no idea how they did it but they inspired me to have the confidence to do it and I’m so grateful that they did! Thank you x

Thanks so much to Dave Talbot and his team for helping Future Youth Zone run our first abseil. Right from the initial enquiry to the event Dave was super hlpful, answered all our questions, and left us feeling very reassured. The team on the day were amazing, they totally looked after all of our fundraisers and staff taking part. Looking forward to running more events with them in the future!

What a great day at our Genesis Trust charity abseil on Saturday 22 May at Monkton School. This was the fourth abseil event that I have organised with Dave and his team. Once again Dave made it a super day for me as the organiser and for all the participants as well. For charity abseils he is our go-to man. Thanks Dave!
