Around 30 people took part in the zipwire challenge, all travelling by coach to the remote welsh quarry. Ashley and Carrie-Ann both traversed the quarry, strapped into a harness and dangling from from a single zipline - a daring effort in what was very wet weather conditions. The couple raised an amazing £525 for Alex's Wish, towards the fantastic £9,000 total raised by the LLS for this event.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is an aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys born. Around 50 boys are affected in the East Midlands.
