Rotary Forth Bridge Abseil 2019

Thanks to all those who have registered for the 2019 Abseil. Please do all you can to raise as much money  as you can for your chosen charity. We look forward to seeing you in July.

The 2019 Abseil has now sold out, but you can help us by volunteering on the day.  We need sixty people to help us ensure it runs smoothly and safely.  Why not join us for this historic occasion when we expect to hit the magical one million pounds raised since the event started.
