Zip World Velocity

Velocity is ‘the nearest thing to flying’. As well as being the longest zip line in Europe it is also the fastest in the world.

This adrenaline fuelled attraction offers visitors a unique experience. With a mile, long zip line reaching speeds in excess of 100mph, riders will have a birds-eye view of the historic Bangor slate quarry and the spectacular North Wales coastline and beyond.

In Aid of Orphans and Families Living in the Slums of Pakistan

After travelling with TeamMH as part of the volunteer in Pakistan trip, Shamila felt inspired to go the extra mile and help orphans and needy children. This started with a charity dinner, Grand Prix Race Challenge and now Zip World Velocity.
Shamila was particularly moved by the conditions of the slums that some of the students from the Muslim Hands schools reside in and felt compelled to take action.

Shamila Iqbal said:
‘One pen, one child, one teacher can change the world. - I believe that every child in the world deserves to pick up a pen and put it to paper to seek an education. Education can be a doorway which can lead many out of poverty. It empowers people to build a better future for themselves and their families. The education of one child can change the future of many generations’.
