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.

The Gift of Water

With over 800,000 people dying from water-related illnesses each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities in the developing world.

Muslim Hands works globally to provide people with access to clean water and sanitation. The type of communities we work with vary greatly so our approach reflects this. Assessing the need for water on an individual basis, we tailor our solutions to specific problems.

With you support, Muslim Hands will be able to provide clean drinking water to the world’s poorest communities.
