Abseiling for Aware!

Calling all adrenaline junkies! Aware Defeat Depression has a few spaces for people who want to abseil down Scrabo Tower, near Newtownards! The tower itself is over 100 ft high and offers stunning views across Newtownards, Strangford Lough and further afield towards Belfast and Bangor. Taking place on Saturday 2nd October, we need a few more daredevils to descend over the edge of the viewing platform to terra firma to raise money for Aware Defeat Depression!

Aware Defeat Depression works exclusively in Northern Ireland to support people who experience depression or bipolar disorder. Our support groups and helpline provide vital services to help people recover and lead fulfilled lives, but we need donations to help continue our good work!

One brave member of the Aware team will even be taking up the challenge herself! Lorraine, who abseiled down the Europa a few years ago says, “I can’t wait to abseil down Scrabo! I think it’ll be much more exhilarating than abseiling down the Europa- the view will certainly be much better this time! There is nothing like the euphoria when you take that first peek over the edge as you start to descend!”

If you wish to join Lorraine and raise some sponsorship, contact her on 9032 1734 or email lorraine@aware-ni.org. To make a donation to Aware, just visit www.justgiving.com/aware
