Sis­ters take on a terrifying zip wire for char­ity

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.”
