Souter sponsored abseil

Abseil down the lighthouse tower and help us raise funds to care for Souter's coast.

  • Booking essential

Do you dare to tackle the tower? We're offering a handful of brave people a rare chance to abseil down the lighthouse under the expert guidance of outdoor activity specialists Pinpoint Adventure. It's all in a good cause; you'll be helping us repair footpaths, clifftop safety barriers and fencing along the coast, maintain Whitburn Local Nature Reserve and pay for seed to feed the birds. We'll provide you with a sponsorship form and, by raising a minimum of £80, you play your part in looking after Souter to benefit people and wildlife.
