Could you be 1 in a 100 who makes a life limited or terminally ill child’s dream come true?

Could you be one in a 100 who abseil 51m down the side of a building to raise funds to send life limited or terminally ill children to Lapland in December?

If you think you have got what it takes and you’re up for the challenge, the NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust would love to hear from you.

The NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust is organising The Adventure Abseil at 12 pm on Sunday 23 June 2019 at The Europa Hotel, Belfast. The adrenalin filled fundraising event can accommodate up to 100 abseilers.

The NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust is a charity that aims to fulfil the dreams of terminally ill, life limited and deserving children by taking them on a trip of a lifetime to see Santa at his home in Lapland.  Funds raised from the abseil will go directly towards the trip on 17 December 2019.

Discussing the abseil, Fiona Williamson, Co-ordinator, NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust, says:

“We are asking each abseiler to raise a minimum of £100 through sponsorship and we will cover all of the necessary insurance. On the day of the abseil, all abseilers will meet in the lobby of the Europa Hotel. It will take approximately two hours from the point of registering until you finish the abseil.

“Comfortable clothing is advisable, as are flat shoes or training shoes. To book your place all you need to do is send a confirmation email to and include your name, address, and contact number.  We will send you the necessary sponsor forms, NICLT brochures and DVDs to help with your fundraising efforts.”

Ms Williamson continues: “Alternatively, if you can’t take part in the abseil but you’d still like to make a donation towards the December 2019 Lapland trip you can do so through via our website or our NICLT Just Giving page. All donations are so very appreciated.”

Over 50 individuals and local companies such as Ballyclare-headquartered Hagan Homes, Bangor based FOCUS Menswear, Carrick’s Courtyard shopping complex and Wineflair have already signed up for the challenge.

Jim Burke, Director of Sales and Acquisition at Hagan Homes, discusses:

“Hagan Homes is committed to supporting local communities and organisations that have families and young people at the heart of what they do. We have worked closely with NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust for many years. What they offer terminally ill or life limited children and their families is absolutely priceless - creating magical memories by helping them to travel on a trip of a lifetime to Lapland.

“It is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding and deserving charities we have ever been involved with. I, along with my colleagues Matthew Hamilton, Andrea Sinclair, Lorraine Weir and Stephen Mitchell, are delighted to join forces with the charity once again and help with their fundraising efforts. If you would like to donate please check out our Just Giving page”

In Northern Ireland, at any given time, there are over 1500 children suffering from a terminal illness or life limiting illness.

The NI Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust does not receive any government or national funding, it is totally reliant on donations. Trips are made possible by the generosity of many individuals and companies.

Children are nominated by health workers based throughout all of the paediatric departments and hospitals in Northern Ireland. Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals give up their own time to volunteer to ensure the children can experience a magical time of memories.
