Hello friends. I have signed up - in my old age - to do a Zip Wire Challenge and I need your help to raise money to help to send sick and disabled children to Orlando, Florida for the holiday of a lifetime. 

In effect, I am going to fly off the mountain, on a Zip Wire, to raise money for Dreamflight. What a way to start a new decade!

More about Zip world and the velocity challenge. 

'Zip World offers visitors a totally unique and world-class experience as they fly for over a mile through the skies on the longest zip wire in Europe – “The nearest thing to flying”!!'

More about Dreamflight.

"Dreamflight is a UK charity that changes young lives through taking children with a serious illness or disability, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida."  It costs about £3500 per child. 

The Liverpool Fundraising Group has teamed up with Zip World  to raise money to send  six  children from the Liverpool area  to Orlando with Dreamflight - without their parents - for the holiday of a lifetime.  

Will Lewis is a little boy who did the Zip Wire Challenge but has since sadly passed away. This challenge is in his memory. 

Where does the Lancs and Lakes Gold Wings region fit in?

As a member of GWOCGB for over sixteen years, my husband Allen and I  have been involved in raising money for charity for many years. Each region usually nominates a local charity. We also support the nominated National Charity. This Dreamflight Event is an extra one for our region Lancs and Lakes GoldWings as it is such a worthy cause and the Liverpool Fundraising Group is on our region's doorstep. As I live in North Wales, I am fully aware of the challenges and beauty of the mountains in the Snowdonia national Park.

I really need your help - just a £1 will do - to raise at least my required minimum amount of £200

  • How? Use the 'Donate' button on my Just Giving page. It is a secure site and your details will not be passed on. You can also Gift Aid if you are a taxpayer.which costs you nothing. If you are not familiar with gift aiding it is simply that the HMRC give back to the charity the tax you have already paid on the amount you have donated. 
  • Donating by Text is also free on 70070 using the code LLGW80 
  • The donations go straight to Dreamflight which is a national charity.

Here is a link to my Just Giving page with the full story.

Last but not least.

If you are in the area do come along and cheer me on. Spectators wait at the signing-in post I understand. 

Hey-ho! Life is for living!
