Zip the Cow for Manorlands

After the huge success of ‘Zip the Pepper Pot’ in 2019, Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice is delighted to announce a new zip wire event in Ilkley for 2020. On Sunday 26 July, the charity is daring participants to climb the iconic ‘cow’!

The brave participants’ next challenge is to climb the launch tower on top of the cow before jumping off and sliding 270m down Ilkley Moor at speeds of up to 40mph, taking in spectacular views of Wharfedale……if they dare open their eyes!

A spokesperson for Manorlands told Ilkley Chat ‘People who took part in the pepper pot event last year loved it, and raised an amazing £50,000 for Manorlands Hospice at the same time!

‘It costs us approximately £540,000 to provide services to people in the LS29 area, and we are hoping that 'Zip the Cow' will massively help get us closer to that amount.’

‘In 2019 we know that over half of the participants lived within sight of the pepper pot, and so we are hoping for a bug turnout from all our Ilkley supporters this year.’
