Maher Ross 'Ryde the Slide'!

On Sunday 12th July, Team Maher Ross were delighted to take part in the UK's longest waterslide - created right here on the Isle of Wight by 'Rob da Bank' and councillor Wayne Whittle.

The water slide took in over 200 metres of Union Street in Ryde and was manned by Firemen from Ryde Fire Station and Ryde Inshore Rescue.

The aim of the slide was to raise a significant amount of money for local charities including Ryde Inshore Rescue (Independent lifeboat), Aspire Ryde Community Centre (Holy Trinity Church), Ryde Arena ltd (Ice Rink) and Ryde Waterside Pool via the Ryde Slide Trust.  Fingers Crossed, the the Bestival Team has managed to raise over £20,000 in sponsorship and donations

Maher Ross were delighted to have been able to sponsor the event - which we hope might help to be able to raise the profile of the Island - this is the longest ever UK water-slide after all!  One of the main concerns was whether the slide team would be able to stop Graham from breaking through the end of the slide - but 40 feet of foam managed to do that quite effectively!

Our congratulations go to Rob da Bank and Wayne Whittle for organising such a sucessful event and 'Team Maher Ross' really look forward to doing it all over again next year!
