Employees and friends of Independent Lives will be experiencing a taste of the high life this June with a unique fundraising event. 30 fearless folks will be lowered 138 meters from the top of the iconic i360 in Brighton to raise funds for the Worthing-based disability charity.

The funds raised will be used to support the vital work of Independent Lives, which provides essential support and services to people with disabilities. The charity aims to raise £7,500 to develop a community hub in its offices in Worthing.

Rebecca Smicle, Chief Executive of Independent Lives, says, “We are thrilled to be hosting this event to raise funds for our community hub. The hub will act as a space for disabled people in Worthing to build connections, develop skills and support each other to live independent lives. By making a donation or supporting us to raise funds, you will help us to not just create a physical space, but fund the activities that support disabled people”.

The Drop 360 event will take place on 13 June and is open to anyone who would like to participate. Those who are unable to participate can still make a donation to support Independent Lives and its vision for a fair society where everyone can participate and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
