The Big Banana Relay Comes To An End

With 2014 nearly wrapped up, our incredible charity partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust is drawing to a close.

What started as an idea for a few of the Go Ape Bedgebury team to walk, cycle and hitch the length and breadth of Britain, evolved into a company-wide challenge for the Teenage Cancer Trust this summer.

The Relay kicked off on Saturday 14th June at Leeds Castle and has travelled across the width and Breadth of Britain- with some detours across the globe on the way. The banana has travelled in an array of imaginative forms of transport from helicopters to kayaks, wheelbarrows to tanks, go-karts to hot air balloons, fire engines to Boris bikes- we've even broken the space hopper world record and sent the banana into space!

It's been a crazy 3 months and hats off to all the sites for many impressive and original stunts raising funds for Teenage Cancer Trust. It's certainly proof that Go Ape staff take 'Living Life Adventurously' very seriously! Not only do we want to thank those who took part in all of our charity adventures, but to everyone who supported us in our fundraising efforts so here's a BIG THANK YOU from all the hairy Gorillas at Go Ape.
