Abseiling - Fire Walking - Sub-aqua Diving.

We've done it!


We like to do some things out of the ordinary occasionally. If you ever saw some strange people abseiling from the roof of the Gateshead Hilton Hotel, or walking barefoot over hot coals or indeed holding a meeting under water in full diving kit, that could have been us! Our abseil was for the Great North Air Ambulance and raised over 4500.00. (Pictured above is June, abseiling from the top of the Gateshead Hilton in July 2009.)

Of course, if this is not your cup of tea, you might like to get involved in the wide range of other safer activities that we do.

We are very proud of what we have achieved so far. Our members have travelled as far as West Africa, South Africa, India and Sri-Lanka carrying out the work of our club.

You can learn more about us here. So go ahead and browse our site and if possible, pay us a visit sometime.
