Rossendale Hospice certainly knows how to put the fun into fundraising! on Saturday 26th September Andy Buxton, Katie Whitham, Bethany Keys and Andrew Horsfield all of B&E Boys Limited along with six other local companies participated in the Rossendale Hospice Zip Wire Challenge at Zip World Titan in Snowdon, Wales. It is the only four person Zip line in Europe and teams of four flew over moor, mountain and mine at hair-raising speeds of 70 mph.
B&EBoys kindly made a donation to cover the cost of registration fee whilst our daredevil colleagues had to commit to raising at lease £600 in sponsorship. With the support of family, friends, colleagues, customers and suppliers of B & E Boys Team Hawk raised over £1,100.
In addition to the adrenaline fuelled zip wire action, the teams had to complete a number of exciting inter-company challenge activities including a synchronised landing, packaging an egg to prevent it from smashing and dropping it onto a target whilst travelling down the zip and who could pull the funniest face.
Paul Gauntlett, Head of Fundraising at the Hospice says “We’d like to say a big thank-you to all of the teams for generously agreeing to give up their time and take part in what was a fantastic event. Everyone who took part really enjoyed the experience and it was all the more worthwhile knowing they had helped to raise approximately £7000 for a very deserving cause”
