THIRTEEN was the lucky number of participants that took part in a daring zipslide for a worthy cause.

The thrillseekers braved an adrenaline-filled flight across the River Clyde on a zipwire, raising funds for St Vincent’s Hospice as they whizzed along.

To date, the event has raised £3,500 for the Howwood-based charity, which relies on donations from members of the public to continue to provide its much-needed services.

And daredevils who missed out this time around can sign up for another St Vincent’s Hospice zipslide taking place on May 13.

Volunteers are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship total of £150.

Meanwhile, the fundraising team at St Vincent’s are busy organising an afternoon tea that will be hosted by River City star Carmen Pieraccini.

This event will also include entertainment from Jerseytones - a Jersey Boys and Overtones tribute band.

Guests are invited along to the Glynhill Hotel, in Renfrew, on Sunday, May 14, from 1.30pm to 5pm.

It costs £28 per person, which includes a sparkling drinks reception.
