Evelina London Zip was an iconic, unique event on an epic scale. On Friday 2nd December 2016, 21 fearless fundraisers zipwired across the River Thames from the roof of St Thomas’ Hospital, past the Houses of Parliament to Victoria Tower Gardens. The zipwire raised over £1million for Evelina London Children’s Hospital, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust, and was organised in partnership with the London Fire Brigade (LFB) as part of their 150th anniversary celebrations. The money raised will go towards the £2.7 million needed to build a dedicated Clinical Research Facility at Evelina London. This new facility will allow vital research to improve treatments and cures for numerous conditions including autism, epilepsy, congenital heart disease, kidney disease and allergies.
