We offer exclusive charity abseils for organisations wanting an event for a larger group or for promotional/TV purposes.
These charity events present an uncomplicated opportunity for charities to raise money; the initial cost is relatively low; final money raised to final cost is high; and it is straight forward to set up.
Corporate groups and individuals can raise their profile, enjoy team building, raise money for their chosen charity and provide a challenging and fun activity for their staff.
Bespoke charity walking events have been part of Eight Point Two from day one, organised for as few as 10 people all the way up to events of 500+ participants.
The distance is up to you as well, from 5km walks for all ages through to tougher challenges like the Yorkshire Three Peaks or the national Three Peaks, we will literally be with you every step of the way.
We guarantee the highest level of experience and delivery as well as an excellent safety record.
Whether engaging your employees or fundraising for your charity, our adventure challenge events make a difference.
We've been running exclusive charity cycle rides for many years.

I couldn’t imagine a Marie Curie UK Trek without 8.2.
The professionalism of the team helps to ensure our participants get the most out of these exciting challenges.
Whether it’s summiting Snowdon at night, trekking an ultra marathon across the Peak District or reaching the top of Ben Nevis, the 8.2 team provide invaluable support and enthusiasm and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.
Matt Carruthers: Senior Events Manager, Marie Curie
We have worked with 8.2 for several years now, always find them extremely efficient, courteous and with a good measure of humour and the ability to cajole even the most terrified participant into action!
Susan Crossley: Cystic Fibrosis Trust
East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) worked with the team at Eight Point Two to create, develop and launch our very first mud obstacle race in 2016 ,that went on to become East Anglian Air Ambulance’s Only the Brave. In its first year the event sold out within weeks, so we knew we were on to a winner!
EAAA continued to work with the company as their event delivery partner for the next 3 years, throughout this time the event grew from strength to strength and is a flagship fundraising event for the charity.
During our relationship with Eight Point Two we always found their professionalism, event expertise, support, enthusiasm and in particular their local knowledge a real asset. We would certainly consider working with them again in the future, if the right opportunity presented itself.
Stuart Wyle:Director of Engagement and Income, East Anglian Air Ambulance
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you and all the team at 8.2 for putting on a truly wonderful abseiling event over the weekend!
Your team were professional throughout and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Thank you once again your team made the event seamless!
