Marlow Ropes supplied rope for zip wire across Thames SUS-160512-161510001

The event was the brainchild of the London Fire Brigade and aimed at raising more than £1 million for the Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

Twenty brave participants travelled the 463 metres in ‘Superman style’ – head first – reaching speeds of up to 40mph from the roof of St Thomas’ Hospital to Victoria Tower Gardens by the Houses of Parliament.
