Where and when does Abseil for Autism take place?

Our abseiling event takes place on Saturday 5 May 2018 in Stratford, East London. 

Here, you'll scale the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and be greeted by stunning panoramic views of the London skyline, before undertaking the UK's highest freefall abseil at 262 feet!

How old do I need to be to sign up?
