Have you got a head for heights? On Saturday 9th September we are holding our first ever indoor climbing challenge at Rope Race Climbing Centre.

Participants will be able to climb the equivalent height of Manchester’s Beetham Tower in the comfort of the indoor climbing centre. Children are more than welcome to take part in the event but the minimum age restriction is 6 years old.

Beetham Tower is one of the UK’s highest buildings at an amazing 551ft/168m and 47 floors high. Once registered you
will be required to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship which will include your registration fee for the event. This means that essentially you will get to climb for free!

The climbing challenge is another exciting event to mark Independent Options’ 40th anniversary, and a superb opportunity to push yourself to the limit while raising much-needed funds to help us continue the work we do for the next 40 years!

To get involved, or for more information, get in touch! Email us at fundraising@independentoptions.org.uk or call 0161 456 6502

Jason's Story

Jason, a Shared Lives Service User: “Shared Lives is a place you can go to get help. You can make and meet new friends, and they have good carers. You get to go on holiday and share your life with someone else. My life is better because of Shared Lives because I have a home that is safe, calm and easy to live in. Shared Lives is helping me to be more independent and gain skills for the future. I am being helped to be a part of my community and I am supported when I am faced with challenges. Talking with my carer helps me to meet those challenges and it gives me confidence.”

Shared Lives Carer: “I have worked in care services for many years, but there is nothing more rewarding than welcoming someone into your own home, and sharing everything in your lives. The relationship that builds between you is something special. No amount of money could buy that.”
