Story

In 2016, thrillseekers took flight over London’s skies on a 52 metre-high zip line above the River Thames. The line, which was 1,480ft (450m) long, was installed by the London Fire Brigade raising over £1 million:

These incredible gentle(persons) are planning a zip line four times the height in 2019 to raise even more.

The insurers have asked for dummies to test the rig on 16 September 2018!

This zip line will be from the top of the Chimney at the former Littlebrook power station, landing at the end of the far jetty on the photo. The initial inspection took 1hr for the team to climb the 21 storeys inside the chimney. To put this chimney into perspective:

  • Nelson's column 52m
  • Statue of Liberty 93m
  • Canada Tower / Littlebrook Chimney 210m!!!

If they can do what they do, with the persons involved being on active duty during and after Grenfell, this is the least we can do to show our thanks and admiration.

Tritax, Bericote, KAM and Brown and Mason have shown amazing support to break through the red tape to make this happen:

Jonathan Maher, Alex Hadden, Beth, James Freeman and Piers Ridout will post videos showing proof of descent and for any considerable donations, they will shout (scream) their names as they fall!

Easy to donate, much harder to ask for donations - any contribution will be thanked for personally.
