We are delighted to announce that both artisan news platform, The Foxley Docket and high-net-worth access portal, GetMyMarket.com have been chosen to promote ZipLondon, a once in a lifetime opportunity to ride an exhilarating 210-metre high and 600-metre long zip line from the top of the iconic One Canada Square tower in Canary Wharf.
Rigged and operated by London Fire Brigade and aiming to raise £1 million for The Fire Fighters Charity, the one-day-only special event on 30 June, 2019, will see participants raising or donating £50,000 each to secure a place on the Charity’s team and experience the thrill of their lives.
One of the steepest and longest urban zip lines ever constructed, ZipLondon will be the only time such a feat is ever attempted from One Canada Square. Utilising cutting edge technology to ensure a thrilling but safe experience, spaces on The Fire Fighters Charity’s ZipLondon team are strictly limited.
ZipLondon participants will be the only people to ever see London from this unique perspective. They – together with their friends and families – will also enjoy a VIP reception on the 31stFloor of One Canada Square and take home a personalised multimedia package of their experience.
The Fire Fighters Charity offers specialist lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community, empowering individuals to achieve mental, physical and social wellbeing throughout their lives. It works with firefighters, former firefighters and past and present personnel from across the UK’s fire and rescue services, supporting their mental health, physical health and social wellbeing.
“Firefighting can be a physically demanding and mentally challenging profession, for those on the front line and for those supporting them, both professionally and personally,” explains The Fire Fighters Charity Chief Executive, Dr Jill Tolfrey. “We have seen an increase in fire service personnel coming to us for support with their mental health in particular over recent years. The cumulative effect of working in traumatic situations can have both short term and long term implications for people’s mental well being. However, the money from ZipLondon will allow us to do more to support them when they need it.
“It will allow us to enhance and expand our mental health support services, enabling us to help more people to come to terms with the impact of psychological trauma, for them as individuals and for families too. So by testing your own mental resilience by taking on a challenge like ZipLondon, you’ll be helping thousands of fire fighters across the UK to strengthen their own mental resilience and continue in their roles supporting our communities.”
A technical challenge that has been a year in the planning, ZipLondon will be an extraordinary opportunity to test your nerve, experience the ride of a lifetime and help to enhance the lives of fire fighters across the UK.
Raising £1 million for The Fire Fighters Charity, aspiring ZipLondon participants are asked to donate or fundraise £50,000 to secure their place on the zip line.
