Europe's largest inflatable slide is coming to Windsor in September as part of a unique 5k charity race to raise money for the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service.
Thrillseekers at Royal Windsor Racecourse will tackle the 48ft tall slide, fight their way through foam and battle against 4ft high inflatable balls in the giant ball pool in a bid to beat the wacky challenge.
The madcap obstacle course, Gung Ho!, has joined up with Alexander Devine to help raise funds to provide respite, palliative and end-of-life care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
CBeebies presenter Alex Winters, who came up with the idea and will host the race on September 26th, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service to raise money by not only holding collections on the day but also by supplying volunteers who Gung-Ho! will pay an hourly rate to, for the charity.
“Of course charity volunteers and supporters can enter the race and get sponsored which is a really fun way to raise money for such a worthy cause.”Tickets are £35 and only available until July 24th. Tickets booked between July 24 and August 6th September will cost £40. For more information about Gung-Ho! and to book tickets visit www.begung-ho.co.uk
