Jess Greenwood, events fundraiser at The Rainbow Centre, said: ‘We’re so grateful to Lakeside North Harbour who have given us their venue for free.

‘So far the ages of people taking part goes from 11 right up to 70 and we’ve even had quite a few Rainbow Centre service users sign up too.

‘This is such an exciting event and the response so far has been incredible we are really looking forward to seeing lots of our supporters on this fun day.’

All money raised will go to The Rainbow Centre which helps children with cerebral palsy and adults who have Parkinson’s Disease or have suffered from a stroke or head injury.

The zip wire is wheelchair accessible and the charity is encouraging anyone aged over six and weighing between seven and 17-and-a-half stone, to sign up.

Entry is £20 per person with a sponsorship target of £80.

Prizes will be awarded for the top fundraisers in two categories – children under 16 and adults.

There are limited spaces available.
