Have you got what it takes to take on and conquer the ultimate adrenalin rush? The Longford Leader in association with local charity Rehab are bringing you the amazing opportunity to do a Bungee jump in Longford Town on Saturday August 27th.

Feel the thrill, the excitement and enjoy the nerves as you prepare to take the experience of a life time. All you have to do is pick up a sponsorship form from the Longford Leader offices over the next number of weeks, raise a minimum of €120 among family and friends and return your form to the Leader by Friday 19th August. It’s as simple as that.

Achieve the ultimate dream while helping a local charity. But that’s not all as the person who raises the most money from the sponsorship cards will also receive a hamper full of prizes. Giving his reaction to the event which promises to be one the most eagerly awaited fundraisers on the local calendar, Longford Leader commercial manager Dessie Connolly said: “I am delighted to formally announce the arrival of Longford’s first ever Bungee Jump. Besides the bungee jump, a wide range of events are also in store on what promises to be an event like no other and one that the whole family can enjoy. Keep Saturday 27th August in mind because the town will be alive with fun and excitement. Watch this space.”

Local Rehab spokesperson, Niall Cole was just as enthusiastic, saying: “We are delighted that the Longford Leader have selected Longford Rehab services as the beneficiary for the event. “This promises to be an exciting adrenaline filled day and I urge anyone who has ever wished to do a bungee jump to sign up immediately as spaces will be limited. Proceeds raised will go towards improving Rehab services in Longford which helps people with physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities in the community to live as independently as possible.”

Sponsorship cards for the bungee jump are available from the Longford Leader office or by contacting Dessie on 086 6027473, or by e-mailing desmond.connolly@longford-leader.ie; Niall on 086 0432267 or by e-mailing niall.cole@rehab.ie More details concerning the line up for the Longford Leader’s biggest Summer event will be announced over the coming weeks.
