Our Charity Abseils
Charity abseils continue to provide excitement to thousands of supporters year on year and still have the potential to raise huge amounts of money. The Outer Edge delivers charity abseil events that are of the very highest standard in the industry and that support your aims of increasing donor value and retention, through:
A Meticulous Approach To Health And Safety

The Outer Edge was founded in 2006 with the primary aim to provide an exceptional standard of delivery in outdoor sports and adventurous charity events. Our charity events quickly became known as among the very best in the industry; soon this represented the largest part of our business as our reputation for quality event provision grew rapidly among fundraising professionals.
Clients have included; Clic Sargent, Macmillan Cancer Support, Tenovus, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Children's Hospice South West, Above and Beyond, St Peters Hospice, Kidney Research and Age concern. We have worked in some incredible venues across the UK e.g. the first ever free space abseil inside the Millennium Dome, the magnificent Battersea Power Station and the first tyrolean/abseil onto the stage of the Bristol Hippodrome.
The Outer Edge does more than provide you with the technical expertise to run an abseil. Often the extra lengths we go to may not be readily noticeable but add up to an amazing level of service that, we believe, you won’t find elsewhere; from ALWAYS using chest harnesses and gloves as absolute standard practice to bringing glasses retainers and hair bands for long hair. We understand fundraising with guidance from our professional fundraising advisor and a close working relationship with charities we work with. During the time we spend with your supporters we are mindful that we are continuing your own efforts in relationship building and that the donor’s experience of the event can affect retention and long-term value.
