Brave employees of specialist motor dealer ACF Car Finance Limited will slide to success next month as the team takes part in a charity zip-wire challenge.
A group of 10 employees from the company have signed up for The Springtime Sweethearts Charity Zip Wire Challenge which will take place on Sunday 20 February. The charity event will see challengers tackle the 250m zip-wire off the Imperial War Museum North.
The motor finance team has pledged to raise more than £1,500 in personal sponsorship which will be divided between event organisers The Stroke Association and the motor industry charity, BEN.
With match-funding from their employers, the team expects to donate at least £3,000 to be divided between the two charities.
ACF Car Finance has been a keen supporter of BEN, the Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund, with staff previously taking part in a number of fundraising activities including a sponsored sky dive and the Manchester 10k run.
"To be taking part in the charity zip slide in aid of these two fantastic charities is an honour for the whole team and we are all excited for the big day," said Jane Whittle, ACF Car Finance Marketing Manager, who will also tackle dizzy heights for the challenge.
Jane added: "BEN provides support and advice to the people who work in our industry. We fully appreciate the tireless work they do. We are pleased to also be able to donate money to support the vital research provided by The Stroke Association."
