A feisty fundraiser recently braved Zip World, the fastest Zip Line in the world, and raised a huge amount of money for us as a result of her fearlessness. We are extremely grateful to AUDREY COX from Denbigh who flew through the air at a speed of approximately 100 mph over Penrhyn Slate Quarry, Bethesda. She raised over £800 on our behalf and these funds will enable us to provide much needed additional support to unpaid carers who live locally in the area. On behalf of us all: THANK YOU AUDREY FOR YOUR COURAGE AND FOR HELPING CARERS
