Zip wire success to raise funds for Oldham Mayor’s fund
Those of you who follow us on Twitter or read this blog will know that five of the Pearson team (Ian Wolstenhulme, Rosie Aldcroft, Marie Pauley and Jade Hegarty), set out to raise £1,000 by doing the Snowdon Zip Wire at Zip World in Bethesda on 14 May.
The build-up to the event was somewhat nerve-wracking and I did often wonder why on earth I’d signed up to it. On the day, however, I was buoyed along by the fantastic camaraderie of my team and the others who were taking part to support the initiative for the Lord Mayor’s Fund. Everyone did their bit and, despite the nerves, it was a fantastic experience and a novel way of seeing some of the Snowdon landscape at 100mph up in the air.
As well as spending time with lots of interesting people, we raised £1,073.55 which we were delighted to put towards the Lord Mayor’s fund. In all the Zip Wire challenge raised more than £6,400.
We understand that Councillor Derek Heffernan has raised £46,000 in his year of office as Oldham Mayor – an outstanding achievement. You can read more about how that money will be spent in the Oldham Chronicle, here.Subscribe to our newsletter
