LindaMc_zipWhat’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

Spaces are filling up fast so email info@yourcentre.org or phone 0151 706 3153 to register your place.

Liverpool has a lot to celebrate in ’08 but there’s one special event which will not only capture the hearts of the city – but the world over.

You have the opportunity to play a part – and help shape – Field of Women – the biggest public show of unity and support for those affected by breast cancer ever seen in the UK.

The event takes place on Sunday 6th July at Liverpool Cricket Ground and is being organised by Liverpool-based breast cancer unit The Linda McCartney Centre.

It is hoped more than 10,000 men, women and children, will come together not only to show support for those affected by breast cancer but demonstrate there is hope after a diagnosis.

The Linda McCartney Centre is calling on you to spread the word and help make this a day to remember.

How can you help?

Firstly, visit our website www.fieldofwomen.com and register to attend on the day.
Then you can help by forwarding this message to your friends and family – encouraging them to register too.

You can also help by displaying information in company newsletters, on intranets or in displaying leaflets in your staff room. Simply contact info@fieldofwomen.com and they will send you all the collateral you need.

The more people who know about the event, the more powerful it will be. Help to make this a day to remember.

Thank you for helping us and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday 6th July.
