The Leicester Mercury reports: A 100-metre slip’n’slide will be helping to raise money for the Loros hospice at a family event this summer. The popular ride will be at this year’s Family Fun Day at Leicester Racecourse on Sunday, August 7.
Loros fundraising co-ordinator Laura Fitzsawyer said: “Slip’n’slides are brilliant fun and we wanted
“Leicester Racecourse have always been really supportive of us and we asked them about putting on an event with a slip’n’slide and they said we should bring one to the Family Fun Day, which is great because there should be in the region of about 10,000 people there.”
Visitors with swimming costumes will be able to pay £3 for a single go on the slip’n’slide or £8 to have three goes. The real enthusiasts can pay £10 and get to slide all day long.
The Family Fun Day will take place between 10am and 4pm and there will be horses taking part in flat racing on the day, as well as pony rides, stilt walkers, fire displays, face-painting and some superhero visitors.
And if the slip’n’slide isn’t enough for adrenaline junkies, there will also be a bungee run, a gladiator arena, jousting, an activity castle and a fun run.
Entry to the Family Fun Day will be free for children and cost £15 for adults. More…
