Spinnaker Tower Challenge

Spinnaker Tower Challenge

14 Mar 2020 - 15 Mar 2020

*Please note that this event has been postponed*

Alabaré's Spinnaker Tower Challenge is a fantastic personal challenge and amazing adrenalin rush. Take on a 100 metre abseil down the side of Portsmouth’s iconic landmark and sleep over night at the exclusive Big Sleep at the top of the tower.

You can either take part in one of these challenges or if you are feeling brave join us for both.

All participants will be raising vital funds for Alabaré's work with homeless and vulnerable people.

Participants who are abseiling and taking part in the Big Sleep pledge to raise a minimum of £300 for Alabaré's services


Experience an amazing adrenalin rush and take on a 100 metre descent down the side of Portsmouth’s iconic landmark, Spinnaker Tower. With unmissable views across Portsmouth harbour, the Solent and the Isle of Wight, there is no better reason to experience life on the edge!

You can choose to abseil on Saturday 14th March or Sunday 15th March 2020. The day will run from 8am until 4pm.

Participants who are abseiling must be aged 14 or over.

Participants who are abseiling only pledge to raise a minimum of £200 for Alabaré.

Big Sleep:

For the first time ever, Alabaré is bringing The Big Sleep to Spinnaker Tower. Enjoy the sparkling night time views of Portsmouth Harbour before bedding down 110 metres above sea level.

The Big Sleep welcomes those who want to take a stand against homelessness by swapping their beds for sleeping bags, to raise funds and awareness for those who are forced to call the streets home.

The Big Sleep will start at 8pm on Saturday 14th March and end at 6am on Sunday 15th March.

Participant who are joining us for the Big Sleep only pledge to raise a minimum of £100 for Alabaré (£50 for anyone aged 14-18).


726 homeless people died last year.* By taking part in The Spinnaker Challenge and fundraising for Alabaré, you will be making a difference to the lives of homeless people in Hampshire and other areas.

Alabaré's Homes, Drop In Centres and training facilities support homeless and vulnerable people. Alabaré help them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life. Each year we enable around 2,000 people come off the streets but our work is challenging and the challenge is getting bigger, with the number of rough sleepers increasing.

Let's end homelessness!
