Members of JMW's Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence teams recently took part in a zipwire slide across the Manchester Ship Canal in aid of the Child Brain Injury Trust. Take a look at their efforts, and experience the zipslide yourself, in their video.  

Video Transcripts

Jane: Hi my name’s Jane Kirkham and I’m a paralegal here at JMW solicitors. I’m taking part in the zip wire because I think it’s a really good charitable cause plus I’ve always want to do a zip line and now’s the perfect opportunity to do it combining it with a good deed. I’m probably least looking forward to having to step off the edge of the ledge but hopefully, it will be worth it when I get to the bottom.

Gordon: Hello, My name is Gordon Cartwright I’m a partner in the PI department of JMW, foolishly I’ve agreed to the zip line in aid of the child brain injury trust. Fantastic charity but I can’t say it’s something I’m particularly looking forward to. Not over the moon going over the end of a building on the zip wire. So the part I’m looking forward to most I would have to say is being unclipped at the other end of the zip line.

Vicky: Hi I’m Vicky Hall, I’m a new business consultant, I decided to do the zip wire it sounded like fun really and I’ve never done anything for charity before so I thought it would be nice to give it a try and raise some money. I am dreading the height, it did sound like fun thinking it was in like a park or something like that but being told it was at the top of the Imperial War Museum was a bit daunting but it’s for charity and it will be fun and I’m sure I’ll enjoy the adrenaline rush at the end of it.

Jason: Hi I’m Jason Harwood, I’m one of the solicitors here in the personal injury team at JMW, I’m taking part in the charity zip slide across Salford Quays on the 14th October for the child brain injury trust. I decided to take part because I think it’s a really worthwhile charity and I’m delighted to help them raise some funds for the great work they do. I’m really excited about the prospect; my wife is also going to be doing it with us, I’m really looking forward to taking part and seeing my colleagues do it as well, particularly Gordon who I know is terrified of heights, so well done to Gordon for agreeing do it and I’m that excited I’m thinking of going as Spiderman.

Richard: Hello I’m Richard Powell; I’m one of the partners here at JMW working in the PI department. One of the reasons I really wanted to do this zip slide was because I feel very strongly about this particularly charity and I think it’s important that as PI lawyers we give something back to the clients we represent. If there’s one thing I’m really not looking forward to is that first look down at the Manchester ship canal and just worrying about possibly dropping into it later on.
