Once you have decided to go ahead, read through the Terms & Conditions and then book your place for selected dates between April and October 2024 directly with The Spinnaker Tower via their website and pay the fee according to your selected package – either £110, £140 or £150.

We would love you to fundraise for us, so once you have booked your place get in touch by emailing: give us your name and home address and we will post a fundraising pack to you. There is no target to meet – unless you would like to set yourself one, but obviously we would like you to raise as much as possible for our charity!

All donations raised for our charity stay on the Island and help Age UK Isle of Wight to provide support to older Island residents through our core services. Find out more about our services by clicking here.

Meet some of our fundraisers!

  • From serving his country to serving his community, Roger, an ex-Royal Marines Commando

    On the 19th of August 2023, Roger fearlessly took on an abseil challenge, proudly wearing his Royal Marine Commandos cap as a symbol of his remarkable past. As a pioneer in abseiling for the Emergency Services, Roger embarked on countless daring missions without the safety precautions we have today. It's been over 50 years since he last undertook such a feat, making this event even more extraordinary!

    Dave accomplished his abseil on the 27th August, 2023. His determination and bravery paid off as he managed to raise a staggering £951.45. This makes Dave our top fundraiser for this event - well done, Dave!
