LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre
18th October 2012
After 9 months of planning, 30 members of the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester team braved the cold October air to do a charity Zipwire event to raise funds for Merlin's Magic Wand.
Looking out from the launch site, at a height of 25 metres, the team could see across Manchester, including the new Coronation Street Studio Set.
Everyone was nervous, and excited to be involved in such a fun activity and for such a great cause. Some were even dressed in costumes. After being hooked onto the wire, and given their instructions, there was only time for a quick in-take of breath before they cruised down the 200metre wire across the ship canal to a nice ripple of applause from the crowd.
Everyone really enjoyed the event and are already keen to organise a similar event for 2013. The team has raised £2,200 and, with a lot of donations still to come in, they are hoping to raise close to £4,000!
