Conquer The Castle

August 10th, 2015



Take on a unique and thrilling challenge of abseiling 100ft down the side of one of Belfast’s most iconic buildings – Belfast Castle!  Abseil the tower and take in the spectacular scenery across Belfast Lough and beyond!

Clark Abseil 1



By choosing to conquer the castle for Children’s Heartbeat Trust, your commitment, drive & fundraising efforts will make a real difference to children and young people living with heart disease in Northern Ireland. Every pound you raise will help us to maintain our services and support.



We ask all participants to aim for the skies with their fundraising efforts but would ask for a minimum sponsorship of £100 which is used towards our services of care and support to local families.  As mentioned we encourage all participants to aim for the skies with their fundraising so if you can raise above this – great!



Clark the Bear is already getting set to Conquer the Castle!



Registration is £30 per person and you can register on-line to secure your place HERE!

Alternatively you can ring or email Lynn for a hard copy registration sheet on 028 9031 2228 or email:

What’s next?

Once registered we will send a Children’s Heartbeat Trust sponsorship form and t-shirt to you, so that you can start fundraising!

If you are registering as a group, we will give you registration times after one another for your abseil date. These will be allocated closer to the time.

The Abseil will be fully managed by Bryson Lagan Sports and you will be provided with all equipment, training from qualified instructors, provision of first aid (in the unlikely event it would be required) and insurance cover.

Please Note…

·       You must be over 16 years to participate in an abseil.

·       If you are between 16 and 18 you need parental consent 

·       A medical form needs to be completed by all participants before the event

New Chair for our Board of Directors

August 4th, 2015

Professor Nichola Rooney

We are pleased to announce that Professor Nichola Rooney will be undertaking the role of Chair of our Board of Directors, from which Dr Connor Mulholland recently retired. Professor Rooney holds a number of roles within the Health sector in Northern Ireland including Special Advisor to the Chief Medical Officer and Professional Advisor to the RQIA, having previously worked as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in the Health Service for over 18 years, culminating in appointment as Head of Psychological Services at the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust.

Professor Rooney may be a familiar face to some of our heart families, as she was the first full time clinical psychologist attached to Clark Clinic and spent a number of years developing internationally recognised support services for families. We are delighted that she is now returning to work with heart families in Northern Ireland once more as Chair of the charity and are looking forward to continuing our work in developing and enhancing provision for heart families with Professor Rooney at the helm.
