AS PART OF DYING MATTERS AWARENESS WEEK, SUPPORTERS TO TAKE ON WORLD’S FASTEST ZIP LINE SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO BE A LIFELINE FOR BEREAVED FAMILIES IN THE WEST MIDLANDS
On 13th May, at the end of Dying Matter Awareness week, 40 dedicated individuals will gather at Velocity 2, in Snowdonia, the fastest zip wire in the world, to embark on an exhilarating challenge for a cause close to their hearts. With the aim of raising funds for us. These 40 supporters will take to the skies and brave the zip wire, knowing that their efforts will make a significant difference in the lives of grieving families.
Edward’s Trust has long been recognised as a lifeline for bereaved families, offering essential support during their most challenging times. However, our vital work can only continue with the generous support of individuals like those participating in this charity zip wire event.
With participants of all ages from aged 10 years to 74 years, 74 year old Richard says, “I’ve been raising funds for this wonderful charity ever since my daughter Natalie died in 2000. The work the Trust does was invaluable for my family and I’m proud to play a small part in helping bereaved families during their darkest times. The Zip Wire is another exciting event that brings all ages together.”
Clare Martin, Interim CEO says, “We are hugely impressed by the 40 brave supporters eager to push their limits and raise vital funds for Edward’s Trust. Taking on this adrenaline-fuelled challenge as they soar through the skies at Velocity 2, they know that this charity Zip wire challenge will serve as a powerful symbol of hope and healing for grieving families in the region, just as the Kite, our logo does too.”
The event promises to be a thrilling spectacle, as participants harness their courage and overcome their fears to champion the cause. We are very grateful to OTD, George Roberts Scaffolding and Orbits IT for sponsorship support to ensure the success of the event. The participants, fully aware of the challenges they will face, do the zip line so that we can be a life line to those who need it most.
