Sheffield colleagues conquer zip-wire for charity

Three high-flyers from a Sheffield storage company have conquered their fear of heights for charity.

Daniel Green, aged 27, from Whiston, 44-year-old Ben Wolf, of North Anston, both Rotherham, and Sarah Travis, 29, of Westfield, Sheffield zip-wired across Manchester Canal in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The trio, who work for Armadillo Self Storage, launched themselves off The Shard at The Imperial War Museum in Manchester

Daniel said: “It was really high up. I was very nervous, more so than Ben and Sarah. But once I got over that, I enjoyed it and would definitely do something like this again.”

The challenge was a personal one for Daniel and Ben, who have both had family members affected by cancer.

Ben said: “The first time I remember cancer being mentioned was on my fourth birthday. We got a call from the hospital to tell us my grandma had just passed away.

“At the time I didn’t really understand what it meant, just that there was someone who I loved suddenly missing and the devastating affect it had on my mother.

“When this opportunity came about, I was in no doubt I wanted to do it to support the amazing work Macmillan do.”
