While the rest of us were buying and wrapping presents ready for Christmas 2019, Mortimer family life was turned upside down. Their son Luke fell ill with Meningococcal Meningitis and at just 7 years old he lost all of his limbs.
On July 8th - 10th 2022, as part of a nationwide fundraising campaign to support Luke and his family, key figures in the UK outdoor and adventure sector have pulled together to deliver what is expected to be an extraordinary, once in a lifetime event for brave thrill seekers.
Commencing with a chopper ride deep into the Yorkshire Dales, followed by an offroad Land Rover adventure to reach the mouth of the cave, a gruelling 322ft abseil through a cascading waterfall awaits guests, taking them down into the depths of the world famous Gaping Gill cave.
Luke and his family will be taking part in the abseil too thanks to specialised equipment supplied by event partners. Accommodation and a black tie dinner will also feature in the incredible full-weekend line up at the Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa. Tickets for the black tie dinner can be purchased separately for those afraid of heights.
Do something different this summer and become one of the few people on the planet who’ve been lucky enough to descend into Gaping Gill cavern whilst doing your bit for this brave young man Luke and his family.
