Zip wire challenge for charity
PUBLISHED: 17:00 07 October 2015
Four daring fundraisers launched themselves off a 70m high cliff and sped down a zip wire at 40mph to raise money for a Nailsea charity.
Mariza Churchfield, Debra Bear, Chris Serle and Mandy and Niall Briggs careered along the 700m zip wire over an 80m deep, flooded quarry at the National Diving and Activity Centre in Chepstow.
The wire is one of the UK’s longest and fastest zip wires and Mariza faced her fear of heights to do the challenge.
The team has raised £450 so far but people can still donate to the cause at www.justgiving.com/wellspring-counselling
