East Kilbride charity challenge for Leukaemia
March 2, 2010 by Michael
There are many different kinds of businesses around East Kilbride, typically retail shops, building services or your local business card printer. Sometimes it’s good to get involved in something local which can have a beneficial effect on employee moral, simply through taking part in a shared experience.
A leukemia charity are encouraging thrill seekers from East Kilbride to take a run and jump this spring to raise vital funds for this worthwhile cause. The ‘Zip-Slide’ event will take place in the Calderglen Country Park on Saturday April 10th between 9am and 5pm. A charity, who are Marrow bone donor providers, called The Anthony Nolan Trust, have organised a massive 700 ft zip-slide where participants will subject themselves to a hair raising fifteen second plunge.
The organisers say that everyone is welcome to take part and no experience is necessary. A team of highly trained instructors will be on hand to ensure participants have an enjoyable and safe experience.
To take part, all participants have to do is pay a £10 entry fee and raise £100 in sponsorship. The entry fee covers the cost of staging the event, and advertising it with flyer and poster printing, which guarantees all sponsorship raised will support the Anthony Nolan Trust’s lifesaving work.
The day promises to be fun and exhilarating experience for all. So if feel this might be a worthwhile event for your employees why not encourage them to take part? It will be an excellent day out and will help to raise much needed funds for The Anthony Nolan Trust.
