If you’re an adrenaline junkie and want a truly thrilling London experience, then this one’s for you.
For the first time ever, Evelina London Children’s Hospital has announced an opportunity to zipline across the Thames from St Thomas’ Hospital to the Houses of Parliament as part of their Christmas fundraising programme. Starting at the top of St Thomas’ Hospital, at a whopping 52 metres high, the zip will span 463 metres and bring zipliners across to Victoria Tower Gardens at speeds of up to 40mph!
The event is organised in partnership with the London Fire Brigade, whose Deputy Assistant Commissioner Andy Roe’s son was treated by the hospital. The fundraiser will also involve a two day Christmas market from 1-2 December, and all proceeds will go towards creating a new dedicated Clinical Research Facility for children at Evelina London.
For a chance to win a place on the zip wire on 2 December, visit http://www.supportevelina.org.uk/zip and make a donation before 4pm on Tuesday 22nd November.
