Calling all thrill seekers – St Thomas’ Abseil is back! It’s been over two years since we have been able to hold our beloved fundraising events. But this September, we are delighted to be able to invite you back to our flagship Abseil event, which will be better than ever.

For the first time, we will be holding St Thomas’ Abseil over two days - on the 10th and 11th of September - to ensure as many people as possible can take part, whilst keeping in line with social distancing and government guidelines.

Enjoy one of the most famous views in the world as you descend St Thomas’ Hospital to celebrate and support the very people who cared for our community during the coronavirus pandemic.

Staff at Evelina London stepped up at one of the most difficult times in our history – working tirelessly, under immense stress, to tackle the pandemic. They responded with professionalism, dedication and courage to continue proving the very best care to those who need them.

What they have achieved is nothing short of phenomenal, and now is your chance to show them your love, support and appreciation.

What better way to celebrate their amazing achievements, than by abseiling down one of the very buildings where they care for this community of ours?

Experience the thrill of descending the 160 ft St Thomas’ Hospital, alongside the iconic Houses of Parliament and the River Thames. It will be an achievement you will cherish forever!

Plus, every penny you raise will support expert care, life-saving research and specialist equipment that transforms the lives of children, young people and our NHS staff.

Booking for this year's event has now closed. Register your interest for the 2022 abseil using the form below.

Thank you to Livingbridge for sponsoring the St Thomas’ Abseil 2021.
