Take the plunge

DARE-DEVILS can take the plunge from one of the region’s best loved landmarks, all in the name of charity.

Age UK Northumberland is looking for participants to take part in a fancy dress zip slide from the Tyne Bridge.

As the event takes place on Sunday, October 30, it will have a Halloween theme and people are urged to dress up as witches, ghosts and wizards.

However, fancy dress is optional.

Registration for the event costs £35 and participants are asked to pledge to raise at least £100 in sponsorship for the charity.

The funds will be used to support vulnerable and isolated older people across the county.

To register for the zip wire contact Catrina Flynn on 01670 784841 or email catrina.flynn@ageuk-northumberland.org.uk
