A South Tyneside hospice is calling on daredevil fundraisers to take part in its next exciting event –a zip slide from the Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art in Gateshead.

 This is the fourth time St Clare’s Hospice, in Jarrow, has had places at the Zip Slide in Gateshead and it is looking for more fundraisers to take up the challenge of flying 900ft over the River Tyne.

 Tyler Anderson, trainee fundraiser for St Clare’s said: “We’re excited to be holding this event once again; it’s a great challenge for people and a real achievement to have completed.”

 The zip slide will be taking place on Sunday, September 20, and the event is open to anyone aged 16 years old or over (under-18s need parental consent). Places cost £20 and participants should aim to raise at least £100 in sponsorship.
