Sisters take on a terrifying zip wire for charity
A PAIR of young adrenaline junkies have conquered the world’s fastest zip wire to raise money for charity.
Cerys and Tia Robinson, aged 12 and 10 respectively, zoomed through the air head-first at the Velocity zip wire in Wales to celebrate their birthdays.
The terrifying zip wire reaches speeds of up to 100mph and is also the longest zip line in Europe.
The generous youngsters wanted to use the opportunity to raise money for their chosen charities because it was “such a big challenge”.
Cerys, a student at Hinckley Academy, raised money for the Shelby Academy of Performing Arts to help them to buy new equipment.
Meanwhile, Tia, a pupil at Westfield Juniors, used the experience to raise money for Hinckley Trampolining Club, where she is a member.
Proud mum Susan said: “They are both adrenaline junkies and so are always looking for another adventure but wanted to raise money whilst doing so.
“They both loved the experience as it’s as close to really flying as you can get.”
