Guides, rangers and leaders from Greater Manchester West in daring 260 metre zip wire challenge
9:00am Friday 22nd June 2012 in Urmston
GUIDES, rangers and leaders from Manchester showed their adventurous side with Girlguiding North West England’s zip wire challenge on June 16.
The girls and adults zipped across the Manchester Ship Canal from the Imperial War Museum to The Lowry, 260 metres away.
The challenge on June 16, dubbed ‘Up High’, was part of a series of events taking place across the North West of England over the weekend.
The youngest challenger, 12-year-old Elizabeth McKenzie, pictured, raised £50 and for Urban – RIDE, a charity group that enables people from all sectors of the community to take up horse riding.
To coincide with the event, 190 girls from across the region attended an ‘Up High’ themed fete in the Lowry Plaza, and took part in a range of activities including a climbing wall, balloon modelling and mural painting.
