Middlesbrough’s Iconic Transporter bridge is once again the backdrop for Santa’s on the Bridge, a 165ft Abseil on the 8th December, this year in memory of Jason Wood who sadly passed away last December.

Jason worked for Morrison’s in Teesside park, he led a fearless team of 10 colleagues, participating in Santas on a Bridge 2018 in aid of Age UK Teesside. His kindness, generosity and passion for supporting local causes was remarkable, therefore Age UK Teesside are dedicating the Abseil to his memory and ensuring his legacy lives on.

Santa’s on the Bridge offers participants the chance to get into the festive spirit, in full Santa suit participants will climb the 210 steps to the top of the bridge and then step backwards over the edge of the platform abseiling straight down to the tarmac below.
