EACH to host fundraising event at stadium in May
Town fans will have the chance to experience Portman Road like never before with the news that EACH will be hosting a zip-sliding day at the stadium.
The fundraising event will take place on Friday, May 31, and see people swooping 130 metres across the pitch at a height of 31 metres, from the top of the Sir Alf Ramsey stand to the bottom of the Sir Bobby Robson stand.
Blues midfielder Jon Nolan was at Portman Road yesterday to help promote the day and launch ticket sales, with registration costing £35 and EACH suggesting that participants raise £100 in sponsorship.
Victoria Matthews, EACH Suffolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re really looking forward to what is a unique opportunity for Town fans.
“We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income so we’re constantly looking to come up with new fundraising ideas. All money raised will help us continue offering care for children with life-threatening conditions and support to their families.”
Those wishing to take part in the zip slide experience must be at least 12 years old and more information regarding the event, including where to purchase tickets, can be found at www.each.org.uk/zipslide
