About 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.


Support our Syrian Bread Factory

Bread is a staple food we take for granted, but for families in war-torn Syria, it can be a life saver.

Alhamdulillah, our factory in northern Syria produces up to 30,000 loaves a day, feeding thousands of people who are struggling with displacement, poverty and record inflation.

As all running costs are covered by Muslim Hands, by donating you are helping to alleviate hunger as well as providing a sense of stability and normality to a community devastated by years of conflict.

Key Facts:

Over 80% of the population live in poverty.
More than 9.3 million Syrians are food insecure.
Over 6 million people remain displaced.
