Ty Gobaith Zip Wire Challange

CPS take on Europe’s Longest Zip Wire and Raise Over £2000 for Ty Gobaith!zip-wire-2

On Sunday 18th September some of our brave colleagues took to the the skies at Velocity Zip World to do the Zip Wire challenge for the Ty Gobaith charity.

It was a clear, warm day when the team of 13 staff, their supporters and families arrived at the stunning location deep in the Snowdonia mountains. By the time the team was kitted up and ready to go the clouds had closed in which made for some seriously dramatic photos!

The team got into their red “flying suits” before being taken to the smaller, warm-up zip wire for a trial run before being driven up to the top of the mountain. The zip wire at Velocity is not only the longest in Europe it is also the fastest in the world with participants often reaching speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour!

Doing the zip wire was the experience of a lifetime and an amazing opportunity to raise funds for a very worthwhile charity. It was great to see so many of my colleagues come along to support us and the picnic they provided was superb! I’d like to thank all those who donated and CPS for giving me the opportunity to participate in this event.

Everyone who came along had a great time and CPS managed to raise over £2000 for Ty Gobaith – thank you to all our supporters for your generous donations to this amazing charity. There is still time if you’d like to donate, just following the link to our Just Giving page.
