Zip slide for Action For Kids

Action For Kids is inviting thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies to undertake a charity zip slide to raise vital funds for disabled children, young people and their families.

The zip slide from Xscape Braehead on 8 September starts 40 metres up on the outside of the building and travels 250 metres across the car park.

“Zip sliding is a fun way to raise vital funds for the charity,” says Lucy Duxbury, Community & Events Manager at Action For Kids. “It’s a real rush as you slide down the zip wire and it’s great to do with friends and family.”

Action For Kids is a national charity that supports children and young people with physical and learning disabilities find greater levels of independence and opportunity through the provision of appropriate aid and support.

Lucy adds: “To do the zip slide for Action For Kids only costs £35 per person. All you need to do is to pay your own registration fee and then raise as much money as you can for the charity.

“In addition, all those joining up to zip for Action For Kids will receive lots of fundraising support, including a welcome pack full of hints and tips and a personalised Action For Kids T-shirt.”

The zip slides are delivered by Zip Slides UK, which has delivered over 90 events since 2009, involving 20,000 participants, and has a 100% safety record.
