We are now looking for participants for The Forth Rail Bridge Abseil. There is a registration fee of £70 per person, which must be paid upfront (can later be taken off the sponsor money). Please note that Bosom Buds cannot afford to pay this upfront fee for you.
I need to book the places in blocks of 5, and the charity cannot book your place until you have paid the £70 abseil fee (per person).
To pay this fee, please log on to our ‘just giving’ page and pay there, and then send me an e-mail to confirm you have just paid & to confirm if you would like to take part in the May or October abseil. Once we have 5 payments made for one of the dates, we’ll book those places and e-mail you to let you know your place is booked. We’ll also send out a sponsor form…but please note you can also set up a ‘just giving fundraiser’ page via our page, and ask people to sponsor you there (we get gift aid money for the donations made via ‘just giving’). You can use a mixture of just giving and sponsor forms too, just whatever suits you. You can access our just giving page by clicking this link:
Please remember there is still a requirement for you to have £150+ in sponsor money to be allowed to abseil, as the £70 abseil fee is returned to you from the funds you raise. Also, if you register, then cannot attend on the day, your £70 is non-refundable, so please get someone to abseil in your place / absence.
