Cancer Research UK have an exciting fundraising challenge to announce...an abseil down their newest research centre, The Francis Crick Institute in Kings Cross! It takes place on the 17th and 18th of March and is just outside St Pancras Station.It can be taken on as individuals, with a buddy as there’s two ropes or as part of a team which works really well for businesses who want to do something a bit different to raise money for charity.Watch this space for potential volunteering opportunities across the two event days.FAQs Minimum suggested fundraising is £250pp but you are welcome to do it as a team. So if there’s 4 of you sign up that’s £1000 to raise between you. This can be done through sponsorship on/offline but you can also do activities like a quiz night, bake off, raffle etc. and you’ll get a registration pack to help with that.If you raise £500+ per person you’ll get a limited edition CRUK holdall each and if you raise £1250+ per person you’ll be invited to a special event at the Crick later on in the year.You’ll all need to sign up individually as there’s a waiver to sign and terms and conditions. However if you’d like to use one Justgiving page for the team that’s fine. Just make sure to follow the link after you’ve signed up to create the page correctly.There are 2 lines off the building so you can go down with a buddy and the waves are approx. 10 people. So if you get 10 people to sign up you can have your own wave! Regardless of the amount of people you get signing up just let us know who everyone is and what time you’d prefer and we’ll make sure you’re all together at the same time.For further details, including how to sign up, click here.
