The event is took place at the Zetland Hotel, 53 Zetland Street, Southport from 6pm-8pm. with the money raised will be donated to Southport Lifeboat.

Thousands of ponds were raised by the daredevils who jumped from the World’s Tallest Mobile Bungee Jump.


Manager for over four years at The Zetland, Karen Arrowsmith said: “Last year we did a fire walk for charity and this year the customers wanted something different. We decided on a bungee jump and so we got in touch with the company. There will be burgers and stuff like that, and a pub quiz. We are trying to do an event every year. We support Southport Lifeboat all the time”

Southport Lifeboat, independently run by the Southport Offshore Rescue Trust receive no regular Grant Aid toward the running costs of the lifeboat service and are therefore responsible for their own financing.
