Whether you’re looking for your next exhilarating challenge or a fun activity for your next family day out, our charity Zip Wire and Abseil days have got you covered. 

Get your adrenaline pumping and join #TeamNorthCare for our first ever Abseil event. Scale Barton Tower on Saturday 25 June in one of the largest abseils in the North West, standing at 170ft.

Whether you fancy a solo descent or are teaming up with friends, adjacent lines mean you don’t have to go over the edge alone.

A few weeks later, you can join us for our Zip Wire where you’ll soar 1000ft across Media City on Sunday 17 July. It’s your choice if you take in the stunning views or keep your eyes shut!

Sign up today for one event or both of our challenges and take your fundraising to new heights with #TeamNorthCare to support your local hospital and community services in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Salford.
