Update: We had an incredible experience zip sliding, seven brave and daring supporters zipped over the Manchester Ship Canal from the top of the Imperial War Museum over to the Lowry to raise funds for our Brick Appeal. All of the staff at Barnabus turned out to support the event; cheering the zippers across and handing out chocolate which went down a treat after such an adrenaline rush! There was a lot of hilarity with our group laughing and screaming as they set off and everyone loved it once they got over the idea of stepping out into thin air! batmanSome embraced a fancy dress theme which delighted visitors to the quays not to mention staff in Costa when Batman, Batgirl, Super girl and Peter Pan popped in for cappuccinos!
We will definitely do it again next year, if you are interested in zipping with us in 2014 please email carol@barnabusmanchester.co.uk and we will contact you with options for zipping.

Fancy an exhilarating challenge? Then join us as we dare a zip slide and raise funds for Barnabus on a thrilling 250m zip across the water of the Manchester Ship Canal, landing in front of the Lowry at Salford Quays. Feel the wind through your hair (or big brave beard if you are doing this as well) as you launch off the Air Shard at a height of 30m.
