Test your­self with zip wire chal­lenge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

PRO­MOT­ERS of a char­ity zip wire chal­lenge due to take place at Folkestone Race­course on Satur­day, March 24, have made a last call for dare­devil vol­un­teers to sign up. So far, more than 100 peo­ple have pledged to raise a min­i­mum of £75 to take part in the event, which will raise funds for the Pil­grims Hos­pices in East Kent and the chil­dren’s road safety char­ity Kent Walk­ing Bus. The zip wire will be fixed four storeys up to the roof of the main stand where the TV cam­eras are po­si­tioned on race days al­low­ing par­tic­i­pants in a safety har­ness to zip down the 150-yard wire to the race­course track. In­victa Mo­tors, County Square shop­ping cen­tre, Ash­ford, and the Greenacre Sports Part­ner­ship are spon­sor­ing the event and en­cour­ag­ing their staff to sign up and take up the char­ity chal­lenge. To take part, our brave par­tic­i­pants must raise a min­i­mum of £75 in spon­sor­ship. Pro­ceeds from the event will be di­vided be­tween the Pil­grims Hos­pices, which will re­ceive 70 per cent of the funds raised, and the chil­dren’s road safety char­ity Kent Walk­ing Bus Project, which will re­ceive 30 per cent of spon­sor­ship raised.
