Hospice seeks Everton fans for zip wire challenge

ST.JOSEPH’S Hospice is on the lookout for daredevil Everton fans to join them in a zip wire challenge they will never forget.

The hospice has places up for grabs for anyone who fancies zipping across the famous pitch at Goodison Park and, this year, the route is longer and faster than ever.

The zip line will go diagonally across the pitch from the top balcony corner of the Main Stand, close to St Luke’s Church, right the way across to a specially-constructed platform in the Bullen’s Road corner of the Sir Philip Carter Park Stand.  

The Goodison Park Zip Wire Challenge will take place on Saturday 30th March. Places are available now on a first come, first served basis. To sign up, there is a registration fee of £30 and a minimum fundraising target of £100. Age and weight limits apply.

Julie McAdam, fundraiser at the hospice, said: “This will be the third time we have taken part in the Goodison Park Zip Wire Challenge and this year will be better than ever because the route is longer and more exciting. It will be a fantastic experience for any Everton fan and the best things is that by taking part you will be raising money that will be put to very good use, helping to fund end of life and palliative care for patients at the hospice.”
