Wilsons take part in inaugural charity Zip Wire Challenge!
On Sunday 4 September Wilsons’ Marketing Manager Ped Briggs will be flying over Trent Bridge Cricket Ground on a zip wire to raise funds for the Trent Bridge Community Trust.
The Zip Wire Challenge starts above the William Clarke Stand with a landing point at the Fox Road End of the ground – a soft landing we hope!
The Trust’s latest charity event, sponsored by Nottingham Building Society, provides the opportunity to see the iconic Nottingham venue as never seen before, from 25 metres high, travelling 190 metres at speeds of up to 40mph.
“This event offers a unique and exciting opportunity to see Trent Bridge in a way that it’s never been witnessed before, whilst also raising money that will directly influence the lives of disadvantaged young people for the better,” said Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club’s Commercial Director Justin Tose. “Looking at the height and speed involved, those that take on the challenge will certainly earn their sponsorship, and they’ll also get the best possible view of our historic venue.”Wilsons are proud to be supporting Trent Bridge Community Trust and taking part in an event that will help make a positive change for disadvantaged young people throughout Nottinghamshire.
