The Awesome Droppers plunge from the Brighton i360 delayed again..

Sep 21, 2020 | News

The group of 6 women hope it will be 3rd time lucky for them next year.
Next year they will be challenging themselves to idrop down the British Airways i360 in Brighton to raise vital funds for Safe in Sussex. The Awesome Droppers are Deb, Ros, Sian, Helen, Rebecca and Carolyn. 


Due to the Coronavirus pandemic their idrop has been postponed twice, and now they look ahead to a 2021 date to do this crazy 131m descent which is the highest controlled descent in the UK.

Safe in Sussex needs help more than ever. The charity provides a range of services across West Sussex to help those experiencing or at risk of domestic abuse, with the overarching aim of ending domestic abuse through freedom and education. The charity has refuge provision, a range of community support programmes and a domestic abuse helpline which is open to men and women. 

The refuges are for women and children who flee domestic violence, providing a place of safety and both practical and emotional support to enable families to recover from the trauma of domestic abuse. On average 70 women and 60 children a year access the refuge. 


Debbie West Community Fundraiser for Safe in Sussex who is also one of the Awesome Droppers said “The team is delighted to have a new date to look forward to. We hope to raise some vital funds and help raise the awareness of our work.”

Demand for our services grows every year and finding the money to fund our vital services gets tougher all the time.
