Distance: 235ft to the summit | Registration Fee: £79.00 | Fundraising Target: £100

Walk to the top of one of the worlds biggest rollercoasters, taking in the incredible views as you go! The Big One broke all records when it opened in 1994 and is situated at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach in Lancashire. Many have ridden The Big One but few have dared to climb it by foot. This is a great opportunity to do something different with friends or work colleagues and help raise vital funds for Child Bereavement UK. 

The ascent will pause every 50ft to take in the surrounding views and provide an opportunity to hear more about the UK's tallest rollercoaster and details of how it works. Once at the top of the 235ft lift hill there will be ample opportunity to take in the incredible views.

Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email and fundraising pack from our events team
  • a charity running vest to wear on the day with iron-on letters
  • support to achieve your target from our dedicated fundraising and events team 
  • e-newsletters updating you with news from across the charity
  • access to our online Facebook group, where other fundraisers share training and fundraising advice
