More about the challenge

ZipWorld is one of the country’s premier ziplining experiences. The first zip line takes you down Rhigos mountain, across the Llyn Fawr reservoir, offering stunning views of the Cynon Valley and enjoying the very fastest speeds, racing into the landing point as you fly above the trees. The second line returns you back to Tower Colliery and the Zip World site, spanning over 1.5 kilometres in total. The Big Zip is approx. 920m and the little zip is 620m.

A checklist before you begin:

  • Tie long hair back
  • Remove all jewellery and scarves. Head scarves with loose ends are also not permitted.
  • Wear trainers or walking boots - open toe shoes, flip flops, sandals or similar footwear are not permitted.
  • Wear sensible trousers - skirts are not recommended.
  • As you will be participating in physical activity, we cannot accept liability for any damage to any items of clothing, footwear etc.

What to expect once signed up?

When you join our team, you will receive the following support:

  • A dedicated support team to advise and help you reach your sponsorship target.
  • Membership of a community group to share experiences with fellow trekkers.
  • A Human Appeal T-shirt / hoodie to wear on the challenge.
  • Regular e-newsletters to keep you updated.
  • Fundraising materials.
  • Qualified and experienced guide providing a safe and supported approach to the dive.

Climb for our Orphan Sponsorship Programme

We’ve been helping supporters to sponsor orphans for 30 years. Currently, our supporters are sponsoring 18,495 orphans across nine countries. We’ve witnessed how one sponsorship can change a whole future, and we’ve developed a programme that puts the child’s needs first.

In order to qualify for child sponsorship, an orphaned child must remain in school, which safeguards their right to an education and a future, and helps to give them the tools to support themselves once they become young adults in the world.
