Fearless Phil Takes on Snowdonia Zip Wire for Hope House

Fearless Phil Takes on Snowdonia Zip Wire for Hope House

North Shropshire College’s (NSC’s) very own Phil Jones will be taking on the ‘Big Zipper’ in Snowdonia on September 18th. Phil is one of the caretakers at the Oswestry Campus and much loved member of staff.

In previous years Phil has taken on a parachute jump for Hope House, so this is not the first challenge that Phil has taken on. The charity is close to Phil’s heart as his wife works for the Hospice and gets a first-hand experience at the fantastic work that the Hospice offers. Phil commented, “Anything I can do for such an amazing cause is worthwhile. The work that they do there is priceless, everybody should get involved with something, whether it’s a sponsored walk, run or zip-wire like me!”

Lynsey Kilvert, Area Fundraiser for Hope House, commented “Everyone at Hope House would like to thank Phil for challenging himself to take part in our sponsored Zip Wire challenge.  Hope House care for children with serious conditions, who aren’t expected to live longer than early adulthood by helping them enjoy the best possible quality of life and be as comfortable, happy and fulfilled as they can. All our services are free, however we need to raise over £6 million every year to keep our services running. Without people like Phil we would not be able to exist”.

If you would like to sponsor Phil for his gravity defying stunt on the longest zip line in Europe, which can reach up to 100mph then please visit his Just Giving Page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/caretakerphil or call in to the Oswestry Campus Reception.
