ADRENALINE junkies are being urged to take on the world's fastest zipwire challenge, a tandem skydive or abseil to raise funds for Wirral charity helping children with cerebral palsy.

The charity is calling on thrill seekers from across the North West to sign up and be sponsored to do the world’s fastest zipwire in North Wales or to tandem skydive from 8,000 feet above the Cheshire Plain or to abseil down Peckforton Castle’s picturesque medieval walls.

Jenny Snell, head of fundraising for Stick'n'Step, said: "We are looking for people whose idea of fun is to freefall from an aeroplane or zip through the air at 100mph or dangle 60 foot off the ground on an abseil rope!

"If any of those appeal to you or you are looking to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself with something a little bit scary, please get in touch."

The skydive is happening on July 18 at Skydive Tilstock.

The event at Zip World, Penrhyn Quarry takes place on April 25.

The Peckforton Castle abseil is scheduled for 10 May. Minimum sponsorship for the skydive is £500, for the zipwire is £250 and for the abseil it is £150.

All funds raised go to Stick ‘n’ Step, which offers support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. The charity provides the children with totally free of charge conductive education sessions, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live independent lives.

One hundred children from across the region now attend these sessions weekly at the charity's Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
