Past Mayoress Braves The Longest Zip Wire Challenge For Charity

27/07/18 PAST MAYORESS, Ali Harvey, has completed the longest and fastest zip wire in Europe to raise money for one of the Mayor of Broxtowe’s chosen charities, SSAFA.

Past Mayoress, Ali Harvey, with Past Mayor Cllr Graham Harvey,  presenting a cheque to The Mayor Of The Borough Of Broxtowe, Cllr Derek Burnett BEMA cheque for £478 was presented to the Mayor last week following the Velocity 2 challenge at the Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda, North Wales on 7 June 2018.

Mayor of Broxtowe, Cllr Derek Burnett BEM, said “I am incredibly grateful to Ali for taking on this challenge. I am overwhelmed by her commitment to help support my two chosen charities.”

Past Mayoress, Ali Harvey, said “As a retired nurse, charities like SSAFA are close to my heart. I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie, so I knew I wanted to take on an exciting challenge to raise money for the charities. I know that it will make a difference to the services they provide.”

Velocity 2 is the fastest and longest zip line (1,555 metres) in Europe. It is located at the Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda, North Wales, which involves the rider flying head first over Penrhyn Quarry Lake, Bethesda. It reaches speeds of 125mph and riders soar 500 feet above the Welsh quarry, experiencing spectacular views over Snowdonia and across to the Isle of Man.
