Are you prepared to go Over The Top? - Saturday 9th October 2004

Back by popular demand - on Saturday 9th October 2004, you have the opportunity to go Over The Top and abseil 150ft down the shear face of Bristol's Avon Gorge to raise money for the Centre.  This event was brilliantly supported in April of this year as 61 brave people walked down the great limestone wall - including a lady dressed as Elvis.

London to Paris Bike Ride - 1st-4th July 2005

3 Volcanoes Trek - 3rd-8th September 2005

Enjoy some of Italy's most spectacular scenery while scaling its 3 most famous volcanoes.  We start with Vesuvius in southern Italy, best known for the explosion that buried nearby Pompeii.  It's a relatively easy 4 hour trek to the summit and its spectacular views of the bay of Naples.  Stromboli is next, where a tough but gratifying trek of around 6 hours  will take us to the summit of this small, beautiful island.  The challenges finale comes on the slopes of smouldering, sultry Mount Etna in Sicily.  It's the longest and most difficult day with up to 7 hours trekking before a well earned party to celebrate all you have accomplished over the past few days.

"Swimming the Channel was a real challenge � I had never done anything like it before.  But then the Bristol Cancer Help Centre and the help and support it offers to people living with cancer is so special, I wanted to do something unusual to raise money."
