Owls fans wanted for giant zip wire!

8 March 2016

The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme are hosting a unique experience for fans – a giant zip wire across Hillsborough!

The zip wire challenge has been organised to benefit newly-formed charity, the Lee Rigby Foundation, and is taking place throughout the day on Saturday 2 April.

Barry Bannan’s father, James Bannan, has signed up to the challenge and said: “The club has been so welcoming to Barry and I wanted to give something back. I just wanted to do anything I could for charity and this was a great way to do it.”

The Lee Rigby Foundation has been established in memory of soldier Fusilier Lee Rigby who tragically died in 2013. Sheffield Wednesday regularly work with the charity and offer support to Lee's mother, Lyn.

The zip wire challenge is £20 to enter and participants are encouraged to raise £200 in sponsorship funds.

This unique experience is an ideal way to see Hillsborough from a whole new angle at the same time as raising money for a hugely worthwhile charity.
