On 13 September, we held the most incredible day at Village Hotel Club for our first Charity Abseil!
We had promoted this challenging adventure mostly to corporate groups and local businesses, although some individuals took part. In total over 60 participants took part raising a whopping £4,500!!
The Village Hotel Club, located in Filton, just a few miles from the Centre, is an iconic landmark being a distinctive black cube shaped building. It was from the top of this hotel that our brave supporters abseiled from!
All the team from the Village hotel worked tirelessly to ensure that the day went smoothly and were excellent hosts, we would like to say a massive thank you to every member of staff who worked so hard on the day., everyone commented on how utterly amazing, so friendly and accommodating they were.
Huge thanks, of course, goes to all the 60 participants who took the descent to raise funds for the Centre.
We had a brilliant turn out of corporates join us on the day too so a shoutout to:
CLARK - UK
Lovell Place Care Home
Toyota Bristol South
For most of these businesses it was the first time that they had taken part in such a daring challenge, plus the first time many of them learnt more about the work we do here at The Brightwell supporting those living with chronic neurological conditions through specialist therapies.
We will definitely be running this event again next year and we look forward to welcoming the participants to our wonderful Centre very soon, so that they can find out more about us.
Thanks everyone involved!
