Join #TeamPercyHedley for the Tyne Bridge Zip Slide!

Our intrepid zippers will take the leap from the Tyne Bridge and zip 230 metres across the river to the Gateshead side, giving you a view of the toon you’ll never forget, all whilst raising much needed funds for Percy Hedley!

Registration is £43 per per person and we ask that our zippers pledge to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship.  You will receive a free fundraising pack and Percy Hedley t-shirt when you register and we will be on hand to support your fundraising and cheer you on at the zip!

To take part you must be over 16 (under 18s require parental consent), and weigh between 6 stone (38kg) and 15 stone (95kg).  If you have a pre-existing medical condition or disability please contact us in advance of registration by email fundraising@percyhedley.org.uk or call us on 0191 2127878.

The zip slide is organised by Zip Slides UK and you can find out more about taking part in a zip slide by clicking here.
