What’s 250ft high and travels 1,000ft at 30mph?
YOU! … on the first ever Linda McCartney Centre Charity Zip Line
This once in a lifetime fundraising opportunity is definitely one for the brave-hearted…
The Linda McCartney Centre are organising a spectacular event next month called The Zip Line Challenge.
At 1 kilometre in length, this is the 3rd longest zip wire ever attempted in the UK and is an exciting challenge for anyone ready to step up in the name of raising money for the Linda McCartney Centre.
You will start at the roof of the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and travel at approximately 30mph down the wire, over the two hospital car parks to the landing zone at Local Solutions on Hall Lane. Due to health and safety reasons, Zip Lines can not be erected over public roads – it seems seeing people flying over cars puts drivers off – so 2009 is the only year this event can be held before the new bypass is built.
A Zip Wire is a strong cable that a harness and pulley system is attached to, allowing the person riding the wire to reaching up to 30mph in the course of the 1,000 ft journey.
Not for the faint-hearted, this is sure to be an easy one to get the £200 sponsorship needed; your friends won’t believe how lucky you are to get the chance to do it! Only 250 people will be able to take part, and it is extremely rare to have a zip wire this long, so don’t miss out.
The event will take place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of June 2009
