A seventy-one-year-old lady from Rhos on Sea has signed up to ride the fastest zip wire in the world to raise vital funds for a charity that provides vital end of life care to people across North West Wales.
On May 26th, Norah Evans will take to the skies above over Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda at speeds of over 100mph to show her support for St David’s Hospice.
The truly unique and exhilarating experience will be a first for Norah, she said:
“This is something I’ve wanted to do. I’m not scared yet but when the time comes I’ll be a bit apprehensive having never done anything like this before.
“I had ovarian cancer in 2008 and bowel cancer in 2015. Thanks to modern science and gritty determination I am now fit and well.
“St David’s Hospice looked after a friend of mine very well and I want the money I raise to help those in the local community.”
St David’s Hospice is a local charity providing hospice care to adult patients living with advanced illnesses and those in need of end of life care in Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.
Conwy Area Fundraiser James Wilde said:
“This is something, that despite a bit of apprehension, that I’m sure Norah will have an amazing time doing whilst raising fantastic funds and awareness for St David’s Hospice. I look forward to seeing how she gets on!”
